What happens to nyc’s 3.2 million tons of trash | big business | business insider



Please watch both youtube links above
watch and respond (based on your overall takeaway) after viewing both videos. In addition to your response as per your takeaway, you are also to respond to one of your classmates
Respond to Classmate below after reading :
What Happens To NYC’s 3.2 Million Tons Of Trash | Big Business | Business Insider
From watching the video I learned that NYC waste is not actually processed in the city itself. Instead it is sent further away from the city to be dealt with. It takes thousands of workers to get rid of waste. There is an estimate of 3.2 million tons of trash per year, making it at least 450-600 tons per day. In order to get this process started, almost 2 thousand sanitation trucks are sent out for collection every morning at 5am. The trucks get dumped at the waste station and eventually load the waste into containers beneath the ground, making transport easier. The responsibility for getting rid of the waste gets pasted over to multiple places before the process is actually complete. There are thousands of people who work together to make this happen. Finally towards the end of the process of getting rid of waste, the trash is burned in big incinerators at 2000 F. After this process is complete, the leftover waste that has now turned into metal pieces and ash are now used to make cars and cover landfills. The outcome is that only 30% of NYC waste turns into energy, the rest is actual waste.
MAKING MONEY: Recycling – Turning Waste into valuable raw materials | WELT Documentary
There is money being made from the waste we leave behind. Recycling is a process that turns materials that would otherwise be thrown away as trash and transforms them into new products. Materials such as glass, aluminum, paper, plastics, and textiles can be recycled, and doing so consumes significantly less energy than producing these same goods from virgin materials.

Discuss the precautionary principle.

This week, we learned toxicology, plate tectonics, environmental hazards, the rock cycle, and
contagious diseases. For your Unit 3 Complete assignment, write a narrative essay (minimum 1000
words) in which you address and discuss the questions and statements listed below. Use at least
three scholarly sources and remember to demonstrate a thorough understanding of the READ and
ATTEND sections in your essay. Cite your sources in APA format.
1. Discuss the four major types of environmental health hazards. Where does BPA fit in these
categories and how can you get exposed to it? Discuss the precautionary principle.
2. Many people across the world die from exposure to infectious diseases. Why are the numbers so
much higher in developing countries as they are in developed countries?
3. In what ways does affluence affect the natural environment compared to how poverty affects the
natural environment?
4. Differentiate between an LD50 and an ED50 response to toxicity.
5. Thoroughly describe the rock cycle and tectonic plate movement.
6. Why are minerals so important? Why is there such an issue getting consumers to recycling them?
7. Explain how scientist identify and assess risk.

Explain how culture might impact the example you shared from your community.

The tragedy of the commons concept illustrates what can happen when people use a limited resource, which can result in “what is good for the individual is not necessarily good for the whole.” For this discussion forum,
Describe an example of the tragedy of the commons in your area. While the video used the example of fish being pulled from a pond, what examples do you see in your community?
Explain how culture might impact the example you shared from your community.
Identify the natural cycle or system that is being impacted and any threats to the sustainability of a specific resource.
Identify the people or organizations that are responsible for this tragedy of the commons.
Provide one potential solution that could keep this tragedy from degrading the well-being of your neighbors or community.

The health and well-being of local citizens.

In this assignment, you will examine an example of Environmental Injustice and discuss how ethnicity
and socioeconomic status are factors in this injustice.
Instructions:
• Research and find a recently published article or an accredited website (.org, .edu) that
describes a current environmental injustice. Describe how particular minority groups or people
of lower socioeconomic status are affected by this environmental injustice.
• Find an additional resource that describes three (3) negative consequences of the
environmental injustice or further proves there is a considerable problem negatively affecting
the health and well-being of local citizens. Describe the lasting or long term consequences of
the health concerns caused by exposure to degraded environmental conditions. Prove that
this particular injustice is a concern by providing cases, statistics, or case studies
demonstrating this is an ongoing concern in the United States or a specific country.
Requirements:
• Provide multiple pieces of supporting evidence in your claims, using at least two (2) scholarly
resources formatted in APA.
• Provide at least one (1) peer response that elaborates on your classmate’s ideas with further

Based on the first letter of your last name, address the appropriate questions below:

This week, you learned about how urban growth can affect sustainability and how laws and regulations are often used to limit the environmental damage done by sprawl. For your engagement activity this week, pretend that you live in a town with a potential water pollution problem. In your town, pollution rates are higher than average due to a large manufacturing plant that employs 75% of the town located along the river. Cancer rates and wildlife death in the town are higher than nearby cities and pollution caused by the plant is the suspected reason. A potential law is being introduced that will shut down the plant to stop the increasing cancer risks and environmental degradation. However, if passed, this law will likely bankrupt the town and most of its citizens. Based on the first letter of your last name, address the appropriate questions below:
If the first letter of your last name starts with the letters A through M,
Make a strong argument for passing the law to close the plant (regardless of how you personally feel).
Explain how you will deal with the issue of unemployment and economic decline in the face of closing the plant.
Discuss the pros and cons of closing the plant and how you feel the pros outweigh the cons.
Assess creative ways to solve both issues while closing the plant.
If the first letter of your last name starts with the letters N through Z,
Make a strong argument for rejecting the law to close the plant (regardless of how you personally feel).
Explain how you will deal with rising cancer rates in the community with the plant continuing to operate.
Discuss the pros and cons of keeping the plant and how you feel the pros outweigh the cons.
Assess creative ways to solve both issues while keeping the plant.
