OTHER NOTES:   (1) Effective with 1988 data, this category was (a) expanded to include the activities of the Federal and state governments, formerly classed at Other and Unallocable, and (b) renamed from "Sanitation other than Sewerage." (2) The rationale for including at this function waste or resource recovery facilities that cogenerate gas or electricity is that their primary purpose is disposing of wastes.
