TALK/DISCUSSION: TONNAGE AND TOXICITY:
VISIBLE & INVISIBLE SOLID WASTE
PROBLEMS IN THE CONTEMPORARY
UNITED STATES.
In the late 1980s, the U.S. Environmental

manufacturing industries generate
7.6 billion tons of solid waste a year,
with mining and other industries
adding another 5 billion tons. Why is
there a focus on the 250 million tons of
annual “municipal solid waste” while
billions of industrial waste remains an
afterthought?
