Wasted in America [Infographic]

An Inside Look at Waste, Consumption, and Recycling Trends in America…

As a junk hauling company, Fast Haul loads and unloads tons and tons (literally) of consumer waste every month.  As a green-conscious company, we strive to recycle as much of the materials that we collect as possible.  As such, we thought it would be interesting to take a look at the amount of trash produced, the percentage of waste recycled, and the impact of recycling in America since the 1960′s.  The good news is that we have come a long, long way and are now recycling over 34% of our waste as a nation. The bad news is, we continue to produce an increasing amount of waste at an alarming rate.
