The cost of trash


On this episode of the Cost of Everything we take a closer look at the cost of waste management. Host Christy Ai explains which countries are the biggest trash producers and which are the nations with a seemingly unlimited supply of foreign trash flowing into their dumps. Professor Lily Pollans joins the show to discuss how we can manage and dispose of the tons and tons of municipal solid waste and what kind of trash is really feeding the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and filling the landfills of Asian countries.
