Ever-Increasing Waste and the Problem with Landfills
The noble mission to reduce waste, maximize recycling, and encourage re-use has not been able to keep pace with the world’s rapidly increasing waste generation.
The World Bank estimates that global waste generation will increase 70% over the next three decades and that today only 13.5% of waste is recycled and 5.5% composted.
Landfills cause surrounding air pollution, groundwater pollution, landfill fires (there are thousands each year in the United States alone), disease spread, and wildlife disruption.
Ecogensus is committed to immediately reversing this course. The global waste management crisis is real, it is happening today, and it is causing devastating public health and environmental problems.
