The data cataloged in this function are the type, origin, amount, consistency, and constituents of the waste. For example, a dairy enterprise waste amount depends on the number of each type of stock in the herd and the amount of wash water used. The consistency of the waste is either a solid, semi-solid, slurry, or liquid. Wastes from a dairy could be generated in one or more of these consistencies. Components that exclude or introduce clean water also affect the consistency and amount of waste.
