Big Waste


Author(s):
Abstract:
The Triangle area’s landfills are filling up. While recycling household items has become more common, two-thirds of what goes into landfills comes from industrial and commercial waste. Efforts are underway to try to recycle waste from these companies by finding markets for the used materials. While the market for recycled materials is growing, the problem is that many of these materials do not need to be produced in the first place.
