WIN a PRIZE!! (2nd chance this week!!)
 
This month, there is a recycling competition among the complexes; a cash prize is awarded to the winning complex at the end of the month.

In addition to helping your complex by answering this question correctly, you can also win a recycled t-shirt by answering this trivia question:

Americans represent only 5% of the world population, but generate ___% of the world's garbage.
Be the first student to answer this question correctly to win a t-shirt and points for your complex!

Can I ask what source you are using? http://www.emich.edu/biology/DbyN/pd...tudentHand.pdf
has the figure at 40%

"The U.S. is the #1 trash-producing country in the world at
1,609 pounds per person per year. This means that 5% of the
world's people generate 40% of the world's waste."
