In 2011, Americans generated 250.4 million tons of municipal solid waste, 3.3 million tons less than in 2005. This decrease broke the steady increasing trend that has been present since 1960. The per capita generation of waste has remained relatively stable in the past two decades, reaching a low of 4.4 pounds per person per day in 2011.
