Aluminum cans make up a large percentage of the over 1.5 million tons of waste that the world accumulates each year. With the average American consuming approximately 380 cans of soda per year, more than 100 billion cans being consumed annually in the United States alone. Sure, tossing your empty soda can into the trash after lunch may not seem like a big deal to some people, but last year this daily routine resulted in nearly 60 billion cans ending up in our nation’s landfills.
Non-Hazardous Industrial Waste Disposal | Special Waste Services
According to EPA estimates the United States industrial sector generates more than 7.5 billion tons of industrial solid waste annually. While a small portion of this waste is classified under the category of “special waste”, the bulk of industrial solid waste is classified as non-hazardous industrial waste and consists of materials such as iron, steel, stone, pulp, and paper. In addition to being a byproduct of industrial manufacturing & mining, non-hazardous industrial waste can also generated from large scale construction and demolition projects.
