The secret life of garbage via @marcgunther

The secret life of garbage April 10, 2012 It’s trash week here at www.marcgunther.com. Today, an infographic on what happens to the stuff that’s thrown away. I was surprised to learn that China generates one-third of the world’s waste; probably that’s because so much manufacturing goes on there. My favorite factoid: 80% of the things that are thrown away are recyclable. That’s a waste of waste. Over the rest of the week, I’ll report on two companies that turning trash into cash. I’ll explain how DuPont has successfully eliminated all of the waste in its buildings division, and then I’ll look at RecycleMatch , a Houston-based startup that is helping industrial firms find buyers for their unwanted garbage. For now, enjoy, just click on the graphic to enlarge it: Created by: Business Degree Tweet Share Tagged as: garbage , trash , Waste Management
