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, they do strive to recycle as much of the materials that we collect as possible.

As well, ecoATM recycles cellphones, tablets and devices nationwide, 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.
