11. Garbage Gab 2: How America failed at waste

Ever wonder why recycling was better when you were a kid in America? Well, it was. This episode, a trash wizard named Alex Danovitch joins N8 to talk trash in the US. The steady corporate growth of trash has tracked Alex’s career closely as he co-founded one of only four non-profit waste management facilities in the US. Meanwhile, waste haulers went public, and the US’s actual recycling rate went down, and overseas.

Alex and N8 talk about sustainable waste management, challenges with incineration, and how the US can adapt to a new world of recycling. This is part 2 of our series on waste.
