Description:
Abstract: During emergency response and recovery events, significant amounts of debris must be removed from impacted areas in order to facilitate access to these locations, begin the restoration process, and start the reconstruction of damaged and/or destroyed buildings in the impact zones. This dataset was developed in an attempt to locate Solid Waste facilities, to which debris can be directed. This layer was initiated, based on NAICS and SIC codes, by extracting landfills from the EPA Facility Registry System (FRS) contained in HSIP Gold 2012. This collection is being supplemented, edited, and amended by source data from individual states. Initial and previous collection efforts were limited to landfills that accept Municipal Solid Waste and/or Construction and Demolition Debris, but some of the features from the initial collection were found to have been misclassified; these have been adjusted accordingly (namely, a single C&D type versus Industrial waste facilities). This collection effort focused on expanding the Type domain to include Transfer Station Facilities. All new solid waste features must be considered active facilities based on state source data or state permit at the time of release. Already-existing solid waste features that have become inactive or closed since the initial release are noted as such. This dataset is not intended to be a comprehensive inventory of all permitted solid waste facilities. Specifically excluded from this collection are facilities that accept hazardous or industrial and/or specialty waste types, with some exceptions.
Purpose: This dataset was developed to provide locations of active permitted Solid Waste Landfill facilities (Municipal Solid Waste or Construction and Demolition Debris) and Waste Transfer Stations for the Homeland Infrastructure Foundation-Level Data (HIFLD) database (https://gii.dhs.gov/HIFLD). This shapefile was manually converted from its original feature class format by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) Homeland Security Infrastructure Program (HSIP) Team to mitigate automated conversion errors.

Data Quality Information:
Attribute Value Accuracy Information:
Attribute Accuracy Report: No formal attribute accuracy test was conducted. Data from the authoritative sources (as identified in other sections of this metadata) is assumed to be correct and accurate. See also “Overview Description” in the “Entities and Attributes” metadata section.
Logical Consistency Report: Data were extracted from sources (identified in the SOURCE field) and other open source websites to populate the attribute fields; NOT AVAILABLE values (for string and date data types) and -999 values (for numeric data types) denote missing data that was not present in the source data. During quality control, attributes were checked to ensure that they fell within the expected ranges or had expected/valid values. Text attribute values were checked for spelling and usage consistency. No topology tests were conducted. All records were verified to occur within the spatial domain of the shapefile.
Completeness Report: Data is complete as of the most recent date indicated in the Time Period section.
Positional Accuracy:
Horizontal Positional Accuracy:
Horizontal Positional Accuracy Report: None; all efforts are made to place the geographic representation of the facility on-entity using the best available imagery from a wide variety of sources. For this layer, "on entity" has been defined as either the vehicle scales associated with each facility, or the logical entrance to the facility. Users should read and understand the VAL_METHOD metadata as well as the Processing Steps.
Vertical Positional Accuracy:
Vertical Positional Accuracy Report: None; dataset contains no vertical data.

Process Step:
Process Description:
Authoritative data sources are identified through open source research. That data is then acquired and transformed into a usable data format. The properly formatted data then goes through preprocessing steps that includes a geocoding operation to give spatial context to the data. After preprocessing, every record goes through a review process and each point is moved to a facility based on-entity location based on interpretation of the best available imagery and open source information. The VAL_DATE field indicates the date in which the review step took place.
