As of 2009, over 179,000 garbage trucks were running the in U.S. (this seems conservative to me across the 50 states). Each day, Americans produce enough waste to fill over 63,000 garbage trucks. Most of these trucks were old diesel vehicles that were very inefficient, but each year, more and more garbage trucks are running off of natural gas. The average American produces over 4 lbs of trash per day. This amount has been increasing over time.
