Each year, the average person
in Massachusetts generates 1.3 tons of trash: containers and
packaging made of glass, metal, plastic, and cardboard; newspapers,
magazines and other papers; food and yard wastes; and all the
other kinds of trash that wind up in wastebaskets and dumpsters
at home and at work. This figure does not include the 0.7 tons
of industrial solid waste (technically classified as "non-municipal
solid waste," this is chiefly construction and demolition
debris) that is also generated annually for each person.
