The Trash Problem in The United States

In the United States, we produce approximately 220 million tons of waste a year. A lot more than the surrounding Countries. Trash has progressively evolved into a worldwide issue, but more importantly in the United States. Many states and countries around the world are facing this problem where they have no idea where to dump their trash. It’s gotten so bad Texas and a few other states are allowing organizations to dump trash there by the ton for a high price. Here are some statistics that will hopefully make you realize how prevalent this dilemma really is.
