About

The system that your waste will undergo within the next few days is a complicated system that depends on local and federal laws. It might get sorted, it might be melted, and some of it could cross the entire globe. What is certain is that as personal wealth and consumption increases, so does the amount of trash we put out, producing an unsustainable amount of pollution and a strain on natural resources.
