The population of the United States is less than 1% of that of China and India, but because the per capita output of garbage is more than 800 kg, or nearly a ton, the total garbage production here is more than four times higher than that of China, calculated according to the rain melt.
Experts point out that there is a culture of "waste" with some local areas, many of the food they buy are lost before they finish eating, and some things bought on impulse will be thrown away even if they do not like it a few times after they do not like it. Such wasteful behavior will naturally lead to ultra-high garbage production, but fortunately, there is a very high garbage recovery rate, and a lot of garbage has been sorted and recycled.
Garbage classification refers to a series of activities of classifying, storing, putting and handling garbage in accordance with certain regulations or standards, thus transforming it into public resources. The purpose of classification is to improve the resource value and economic value of garbage, and strive to make the best use of everything.
Garbage belongs to the public's private goods in the stage of classified storage. Garbage has become a regional quasi-public resource in the community or community where the public is located after classified release. Garbage classified and barged to the garbage concentration point or transfer station has become a non-exclusive public resource. From the point of view of domestic waste classification methods in domestic and foreign cities, it is generally classified according to the composition and production of garbage, combined with the utilization and treatment of local garbage resources.
Nor has the United States become extremely polluted by excessive waste, although it is because a lot of waste is exported to developing countries, which are exposed to such pollution. That's one of the reasons why pollution in the United States is so low.
