Where Does Your Trash Go? Legislation before the Michigan Senate would ban but only if the U.S. Congress takes action as well. Canada may be our largest source of “outside” trash, but what about the trash we create ourselves? Where does our own trash end up? What happens to the garbage once the trucks haul it off our curbs? Does it matter to you whose trash is in Michigan’s landfills? What could be done to keep our landfills from filling up with our own waste?
Jack talks with U.S. Representative Mike Rogers; Josh Reno who is an Anthropologist studying trash at the University of Michigan; and Frank Ruswick from the Michigan Department of Environment Quality.
