According to statistics the average amount of waste produced per person in the U.S. is 30 pounds per week. When both a trash cart and recycle cart are provided, approximately 20 pounds per person per week is deposited into the trash cart and 10 pounds per person per week is deposited into the recycle cart. Therefore a family of four will produce approximately 80 pounds of trash and 40 pounds of recycle waste per week.
