What happens to nyc’s 3.2 million tons of trash | big business | business insider



Please watch both youtube links above

What Happens To NYC’s 3.2 Million Tons Of Trash | Big Business | Business Insider
From watching the video I learned that NYC waste is not actually processed in the city itself. Instead it is sent further away from the city to be dealt with. It takes thousands of workers to get rid of waste. There is an estimate of 3.2 million tons of trash per year, making it at least 450-600 tons per day. In order to get this process started, almost 2 thousand sanitation trucks are sent out for collection every morning at 5am. The trucks get dumped at the waste station and eventually load the waste into containers beneath the ground, making transport easier. The responsibility for getting rid of the waste gets pasted over to multiple places before the process is actually complete. There are thousands of people who work together to make this happen. Finally towards the end of the process of getting rid of waste, the trash is burned in big incinerators at 2000 F. After this process is complete, the leftover waste that has now turned into metal pieces and ash are now used to make cars and cover landfills. The outcome is that only 30% of NYC waste turns into energy, the rest is actual waste.
MAKING MONEY: Recycling – Turning Waste into valuable raw materials | WELT Documentary
There is money being made from the waste we leave behind. Recycling is a process that turns materials that would otherwise be thrown away as trash and transforms them into new products. Materials such as glass, aluminum, paper, plastics, and textiles can be recycled, and doing so consumes significantly less energy than producing these same goods from virgin materials.

Discuss the precautionary principle.

This week, we learned toxicology, plate tectonics, environmental hazards, the rock cycle, and
contagious diseases. For your Unit 3 Complete assignment, write a narrative essay (minimum 1000
words) in which you address and discuss the questions and statements listed below. Use at least
three scholarly sources and remember to demonstrate a thorough understanding of the READ and
ATTEND sections in your essay. Cite your sources in APA format.
1. Discuss the four major types of environmental health hazards. Where does BPA fit in these
categories and how can you get exposed to it? Discuss the precautionary principle.
2. Many people across the world die from exposure to infectious diseases. Why are the numbers so
much higher in developing countries as they are in developed countries?
3. In what ways does affluence affect the natural environment compared to how poverty affects the
natural environment?
4. Differentiate between an LD50 and an ED50 response to toxicity.
5. Thoroughly describe the rock cycle and tectonic plate movement.
6. Why are minerals so important? Why is there such an issue getting consumers to recycling them?
