From mountains of office paper to restaurant garbage and junk automobiles, billions of tons of waste are created every year. With the exception of clogging the world's overflowing landfills, waste is not necessarily harmful -- but that is not always the case. Many types of waste (known as toxic waste) are poisonous to the environment, humans, and wildlife. This book helps readers understand what toxic waste is, where it comes from, how serious of a problem it is, and what is being done about it.
