Biggest Rubbish Producers

Today I tell about the biggest rubbish producers in the world, how much rubbish they produce in a year....all weighs in Kilograms per Person.

And also how much time some things take to mix in Soil.

Biggest Rubbish Producers

Household waste per person per year (kg)
Germany, Luxembourg, Spain

Every person in the UK produces approximately half a tonne of household rubbish every year, which means that the UK as a whole produces 30 million tonnes. That's enough to fill dustbins stretching from the Earth to the Moon. But that's not all. Household rubbish makes up only 7 percent of the yearly total. The rest comes from mining and quarrying (114 million tonnes), agriculture (86 million), demolition and construction - bricks, soil, etc (80 Million), industrial waste (55 million), dredged spoils from rivers and harbours (34 million), commercial waste (25 million), and sewage (4 million)
