Garbology - Edward Humes
Call Number: TD788 .H86 2013
ISBN: 9781583335239
Publication Date: 2013-03-05
A Pulitzer Prize winning journalist takes readers on a surprising tour of America s biggest export, our most prodigious product, and our greatest legacy: our trash The average American produces 102 tons of garbage across a lifetime and $50 billion in squandered riches are rolled to the curb each year. But our bins are just the starting point for a strange, impressive, mysterious, and costly journey that may also represent the greatest untapped opportunity of the century. In "Garbology," Edward Humes investigates trash what s in it; how much we pay for it; how we manage to create so much of it; and how some families, communities, and even nations are finding a way back from waste to discover a new kind of prosperity. Along the way, he introduces a collection of garbage denizens unlike anyone you have ever met: the trash-tracking detectives of MIT, the bulldozer-driving sanitation workers building Los Angeles Garbage Mountain landfill, the artists residing in San Francisco s dump, and the family whose annual trash output fills not a dumpster or a trash can, but a single mason jar. "Garbology" reveals not just what we throw away, but who we are and where our society is headed.
