"In 1991, after recycling started to take hold, California's dumps accepted 36,506 tons of trash. Now, after a decade of recycling, diverting and composting, the figure is higher, according to the California Integrated Waste Management Board, the agency that monitors garbage. Its statistics show the dramatic early drops in annual landfill tonnage have been overtaken by 4 million newcomers and one of history's biggest economic trash-generating booms."
