Best answer:

Answer by bameripino

home waste materials: synthetic cleaning materials
industry waste: excess carbon dioxide

home-to cut through grease more easily
industry-car fumes

waste disposal:
recycling-the most environmentally friendly
reusing-both cheap and environ. friendly
burning-adds carbon dioxide crap to the Ozone
landfills-disgusting holes filled with shit. not exactly environmentally friendly, eh?

Most cost effective/environmentally friendly

paper/card-consumes millions of trees every year.
plastic-for plastic bags only-over 10 billion gallons annually.
aluminum-easiest the recycle
glass-made from sand; aka dead coral. excellent for environment.

the hardest to dispose of-plastic. it takes 10 years just to begin biodegrading.

Yes, we are producing more waste than in the 20th century. Up until about 100 years ago, factories didn’t exist. Factories produced immense amounts of smog that contributed to the Ozone Hole. Also, up until 100 years ago, cars were powered by steam, a reusable substance also known as WATER. This was both cost effective and environmentally friendly. In the future, we most likely will produce more waste than even now, and hurl the entire place we rely on to live straight into Hell.

there. hope youre satisfied. seriously. i worked on this.
