Citing a previous GreenAnswers answer, the United States uses produces the most trash. We make about 236 million tons of trash a year. After us, it goes Russia, Japan, and Germany who produce the next most waste.
According to the World Factbook, the US consumes 25% of the world’s energy yet we make up only 5% of the world’s population.
Another aspect about this question to think about is how countries manage their waste and their recycling rates. Check out the BBC citation for info about that- it’s eye opening.
