A picture (or graph) is worth a thousand words. Since 1960, the typical American is creating almost an extra 2 pounds of waste every day. With all the addition waste generated, the good news is that the trend is beginning to drop. Sure, there has been a great deal of effort in waste reduction practices: packaging changes, product design, and just people thinking "greener." But since the peak in the graph the economy has taken a huge downturn.
