According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, garbage has grown exponentially in the United States since 1960, increasing from 88 million tons (80 million metric tons) to 250 million tons (227 million metric tons) in 2008. Through objective overviews, primary sources, and full-color illustrations, this title examines How Serious a Problem Is Garbage? Is Toxic Waste a Serious Problem? How Effective Is Recycling? and How Can Garbage Be Reduced in the Future?
