Glass paper and plastic which constitute a major part of waste can be recycled. The average American throws away 32 pounds 12kg of garbage a week. That adds up to 1664 pounds 621kg of garbage a year. The amount of waste in the world has a big impact on the environment. If waste is not handled properly it can pollute the air we breathe the water we drink and the land on which we live.
