So much of the waste we create is “out of sight,” so consequently “out of mind.” We put it to our curbside or take it to the dump, and that’s that. But the life of our trash has only just begun. It often lives on for decades, or much longer, preserved in the garbage time capsules that are our landfills.
The full story of our waste isn’t pretty. It’s a problem, but what is the answer, other than recycling?
