Do Americans use more trash than the Chinese?



  1. 0 Votes

    Americans in 2005 produced 246 million tons of garbage. Chinese citizens in 2003 produced 135 million tons of trash. Now these are from different years and the statistics I could find are not up to date, so I’m not sure if the situation had changed, but according to these numbers, yes, Americans produce more garbage. However, American industrial waste is more heavily regulated than in China and pollution is a bigger problem in China than it is here.
