“Each year it is estimated that 243 million tons of waste goes into the garbage dumps.” – earth911. That amount of trash is high but recycling proposes more serious problems then it fixes. Perhaps one of the biggest problems without a solution is contamination. For Example a lead paint can was recycled and was unfortunately turned into a soda Alpert 3 can witch now is contaminated by the led. And generally no one knows it is contaminated until it is to late.
