The production and treatment of municipal solid waste is a growing issue in the industrialized world. This paper takes a look at how the U.S. became the leading per capita producer of municipal solid waste worldwide. It also examines how another industrialized nation, Sweden, has addressed this problem. It is the author's hope that this work will inspire others to take steps to help reduce our national and global impact on the environment.
