An Environmental Protection Agency study estimates that each American produces 1600 pounds of trash each year. Nationally, this add up to hundreds of thousands of tons of waste annually. Paper products are the biggest offender, comprising as much as 40% of waste.
It has been estimated that disposing of trash in a landfill costs about $22 a ton whereas selling recyclable materials generates $10 a ton. The good news is Americans are now recycling nearly 30 percent of their waste, and the number is growing.
