The US generates 251 million tons of solid waste annually, ranking it fifth in the developed world for waste production (behind New Zealand, Ireland, Norway, and Switzerland). Of the solid waste produced by the US, 32.5% is recycled or composted, 12.5% is burned, and the rest—roughly 55%—is buried in landfills.
