Globally, the volume of waste currently generated is expected to increase by 7% year-on-year, with countries in the developed world already spending approximately $270bn (£167.3bn) a year on waste management.
These figures show how detrimental the impact of rubbish can be on society and the environment, as well as the public purse.
UK Government figures revealed that in 2010 a total of 23.4m tonnes of household waste was generated, accounting for 10% of all waste.
With these shocking rates and failure of waste management so far, could skip hire be the answer?
All waste could be thrown into the skips and then sorted at a recycling centre – this would help with the problem of waste.
