WASTE PRODUCTION NEVER STOPS
In line with population and economic growth, the volume of waste produced has increased more than six-fold over the past 40 years. In 1970, we were producing some 1,200 tonnes of waste each day. Today, the amount has grown to more than 8,700 tonnes per day.
Without an efficient waste collection system in place, piles of rubbish would accumulate near homes and workplaces and create breeding grounds for pests and poses threats to public health.
