Here is a blog post outlining ways to obtain data to display the solid waste facilities in California using CalRecycle Data. I used several well-known data analysis tools such as python (requests, pandas, beautifulsoup) for general web scraping, plotly libraries for graphs, and ArcMap Online to produce the main graphic.

A more in-depth discussion is provided here:

Wonderful overview of the locations of waste facilities in our state! Does this data also include transfer stations listed at CalRecycle?
