Item description for Rubbish! Dirt On Our Hands and Crisis Ahead by Richard Girling...

Rubbish, or garbage, is one of modern society's most pressing of environmental concerns.

Rubbish! is an examination of the problem of waste — domestic and industrial — in the U.K. and elsewhere. Challenging and controversial, this is a rigorous examination of the problem of waste worldwide and the efficacy of the public and private initiatives designed to forestall a crisis fast ballooning into catastrophe.

This is the story of our rubbish — from the first human bowel movement to the littering of outer space. It is an investigation of the looming problem of waste in the 21st century — our fridge mountain; our crumbling sewers; trading waste; packaging waste; the enormity of our industrial waste; spam emails and new forms of waste; horrors of incineration . . . And it is an attempt to find a blueprint for our survival: the way our lives may have to change.
Richard Girling was editorial manager of the Sunday Times Magazine, had a regular column for the Daily Telegraph during the 1990s, and is now a senior feature writer on the Sunday Times Magazine. He won the Evian Award in 1989 for a special issue of Sunday Times Magazine on the medical effects of alcohol and, in 2002, the Specialist Writer of the Year at the UK Press Awards. He is a consultant to Reader's Digest and to the Department of Culture, Media and Sport.
