Passing through the desk was a publication titled “Waste & Recycling News.” We couldn’t miss the headline that said, “Study Sees Global Trash Avalanche.” The story was a warning about the growth of solid waste.

The story reported that the World Bank researchers have predicted “a staggering increase” in municipal solid waste in the next 13 years and beyond. The study said municipal solid waste will increase from 1.43 billion tons per year to 2.42 billion tons per year in 2025. The cost to deal with the increase is expected to double to $375 billion annually.
