US produced more garbage than expected

My first "science" job out of college was a field technician for Rutgers working on the ecological restoration of landfills so I feel close to garbage issues. 

Every single person on this planet that contributes to a landfill should visit one. Everyone should see what happens to those things we throw away as if it disappears. It doesn't - it just piles up truckload after truckload.

So this report that the US produced TWICE AS MUCH garbage as estimated is depressing.
