Nearly 70% of the waste produced in the United States is landfilled. As Edward Humes writes in his book Garbology, a landfill, by definition, will someday be full, and so all it does is enable the continued creation of trash, rather than force a reconsideration of waste. What policies or actions can be taken to become more like some of our western European counterparts?
