Last week industry leaders, government officials, and the public gathered together for the 4th NYC Waste & Recycling Safety Symposium. The event was hosted by the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA), the City of New York Business Integrity Commission (BIC), the National Waste & Recycling Association (NWRA) and the New Yorkers for Responsible Waste Management Inc. Sadly waste & recycling collector is the 5th deadliest job in America. The purpose of such an event is to bring folks together in the interest of bettering safety practices industry-wide in hopes of improving this statistic. Commissioner and chair of the BIC, Daniel Brownell, kicked off the symposium by stating that “the government needs to work with the waste and recycling industry to mandate certain safety protocols and equipment that every truck should have, such as GPS.”

Facts
Fact #1

The average person generates over 4 pounds of trash every day and about 1.5 tons of solid waste per year.

In 2009, Americans produced enough trash to circle the Earth 24 times.

Over 75% of waste is recyclable, but we only recycle about 30% of it.

We generate 21.5 million tons of food waste each year. If we composted that food, it would reduce the same amount of greenhouse gas as taking 2 million cars off the road.

Recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to listen to a full album on your iPod. Recycling 100 cans could light your bedroom for two whole weeks.

Recycling aluminum cans saves 95% of the energy used to make aluminum cans from new material.

Americans throw away 25,000,000 plastic bottles every hour.

Over 87% of Americans have access to curbside or drop-off paper recycling programs.

In 2009, Americans threw away almost 9 million tons of glass. That could fill enough tractor trailers to stretch from NYC to LA (and back!).

In 2010, paper recycling had increased over 89% since 1990.

If every American recycled just one-tenth of their newspapers, we could save about 25 million trees each year.
