Abstract: 

How much garbage do Americans throw away?
What can we learn about individual life-styles from studying
solid waste?
What are some future solid waste disposal alternatives?
Peggy works with University of Arizona archaeologists who
dig into landfills and analyze trash to learn about what we
throw away, and what happens to it in a landfill.
