Growing or shrinking? Future?
Municipal waste is constantly growing because of many reasons. One being the conman person being too careless about their trash, people not reusing used things, no awareness of where our trash is going, and finally a massive growing population. Growing prosperity and urbanization could double the volume of municipal solid waste annually by 2025, challenging environmental and public health management in the world’s cities, according to new research conducted by the Worldwatch Institute (www.worldwatch.org) for its Vital Signs Online service. Although some of this waste is eventually recycled, the doubling of waste that current projections indicate would bring the volume of municipal solid waste—or MSW—from today’s 1.3 billion tons per year to 2.6 billion tons. This also show's that we'll have an enormous amount of trash that will destroy our environment.
