why is this a concern?

People throw away their waste everyday and the waste management transport truck comes and take the waste away. But This actually cost lot's of money going around neighborhood and collecting waste.They then have to take it to a landfill where they dump the garbage, This also will cost landfill taxes.But not only the economic is taking a hit, Because of all the garbage in a landfill it is also hurting the environment. Waste release greenhouse gas in the form of methane which is harmful to the environment. Waste can release chemicals that can go down water bodies and containment it, which it can end up in our water supply. Also with all the smelly garbage this might not attract good people, investors which will lower our living standard

Anyone involved?
