Just How Wasteful Are We in America?

It is a well-known fact that Americans produce a LOT of waste. This is the main reason why recycling and repurposing are so important. Fast Haul loads and unloads tons and tons (literally) of consumer waste every month and they strive to recycle as much of the materials that they collect as possible. A big thanks to Fast Haul for allowing me to share this wonderful infographic with you.
