Descriptions Garbage and Recycling

The Environmental Protection Agency states that in the past 50 years, humans have consumed more resources than in all of previous history. Recycling, reuse, and remanufacturing account for 3.1 million jobs in America, according to American Solar Energy Society, yet our garbage accounts for 42 percent of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. This pertinent resource examines issues surrounding garbage and recycling in America. Chapters explore topics such as dealing with hazardous waste, the global challenge of waste management, and strategies for future waste management.
