We have been incurring considerable expenditure towards lifting and transporting the garbage,” Naik said. The hotel waste collection exercise that was initiated since March 2011 has been exerting a financial burden on the already cash-strapped civic body. The initial idea was to begin the hotel waste collection on a trial basis and then impose garbage collection fees on the hotels once the pitfalls were identified and the exercise streamlined.

It shows how much of an impact were having globally, as a species, on the planet as a whole. This is why he and others are concerned about peak garbage and are attempting to project our trash trends decades into the future. To make such estimates, they rely upon projections of population grown along with a number of established trends in waste: People create much more trash when they move to cities (and begin consuming more packaged products) and when they become wealthier (and increase their consumption overall). Historical data indicate, though, that a certain point, the per capita amount of garbage generated in wealthy societies tends to level offapparently, theres only so much a person can consume (and only so much trash they can produce). As a result, in many of the worlds wealthycountries, the average person produces slightly more than 3 pounds of solid waste per day, and that number isnt estimated to change significantly going forward. The amount of people moving to cities and consuming more in the rest of the world, however, is projected to surge over the coming centuryand even as the resulting waste production finally levels off in East Asia around 2075, itll be offset by continuing increases in the growing urban areas of South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa,the authors of the Nature article note. As a result, unless we significantly reduce the per capita waste production of wealthy city-dwellers, the world as a whole wont hit peak garbage until sometime after 2100, when were creating three times as much trash as we are right now. A scenario that assumes current demographic and per capita waste production trends will continue (blue line) projects waste to peak sometime after 2100, as does a scenario with even greater population growth (red line). Only a scenario with a smaller, wealthier world population and more environmentally-friendly consumption behaviors (grey line) enables peak garbage to occur this century.
