Every country globally celebrates Earth Day; however, today, the world is facing one of the most intimidating problems is nothing but increasing waste issue. This problem can pollute the surroundings, terrorizing some developing countries in toxicity, and debilitating public health.
The problem is that most countries in the world do not have regular access to trash collection, severe signs given the quantity of trash produced all over the world. Some experts say that the trash issue from all over the world has reached severe catastrophe-level, and that is why it is the time to take control of the issue immediately. Here you can find some of the possible solutions that can help you to take control of this global garbage issue.
What is the range of waste problem?
Every year, all countries on the globe generate around 1.3 billion tons of garbage. According to the senior director of Ede Ijjasz-Vasquez at the World Bank’s Rural, Urban, and Resilience Global Practice projected that amount of trash could increase to four billion tons by 2100.
The United States, Japan, China, and Germany are the major leading garbage generator countries. According to the 2006 reports, the United State produces around 228million tons of waste, and by 2013, the figure increased to 254million tons. The population in China is over four times more than the US, and this country produces around 190million tons of waster every year.
Ede Ijjasz-Vasquez says that the more developed and industrialized countries are the one that produces more trash. The UNEP (United Nations Environment Program) predicts that the amount of garbage will possibly twice in developing continents like Asia and Africa as a result of urbanization, population growth, and increasing consumption.
The United Nation Agency says that “There is no stop in prospect to this movement.” He says, public waste systems in developing cities cannot cope up with city expansion, and the countries experiencing quick industrialization, which has not yet planned a proper system to deal with special and hazardous wastes.
Ede Ijjasz-Vasquez also believes that the developing countries ten to waste more on disposal collection, but it is yet not efficient. According to statistics of the World Bank, Africa and South Asia have the low-level of resourceful waste collection
Why are many Americans unaware of being consecutive waste generators?
The President of WasteZero, the largest waste Reduction Company, Mark Dancy, says that “Because people consider there is no problem because they do not see it.”
Unlike the majority of utilities like water, gas, and electricity, the quantity depends on how much is used, and accordingly, they measure the waste. It is because most towns and cities charge a standard fee for waste service or integrated it within the property tax. Most of the US residents do not pay attention to the amount of garbage they are discarding.
Joshua Reno, an assistant professor of Anthropology at BU (Binghamton University) says that “By taking the garbage away efficiently from you can make it more tending to dispose of more.” Joshua Reno studies waste and understands how to manage it.
Joshua Reno spent a year as a rag picker at the mega –landfill located on the outskirts of Detroit, and he was finding the human relationship with garbage removal toronto. He says that the county has space shortage for its trash, even after the best-run landfills can strain the environment.
