People now belong to what they call the 'throwaway society'. Much of what you buy quickly becomes waste - and you just throw it away. This waste means whole armies of trucks collecting and taking it away in all cities everywhere.
Some waste gets recycled (used again), but most ends up in garbage dumps so huge they're like mountains.

What a waste!
my viewpoint, people are really wasting their 'waste'.
Fewer resources, growing trash piles and pollution on a grand scale affecting the whole planet: seas, rivers, lakes, lands, air.
Every other system on our planet runs in circles - cycles. There's no such thing as trash; no pollution. There's no start and no finish. Everything is constantly being recycled - naturally. One creature's waste becomes another's food. Humans and their industries are the odd animals who don't fit in to the way the planet's systems work. But people are learning. More and more stuff now gets recycled. Great!
