Default 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.

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."
