Trash is the by-product of daily consumption. It serves as both a time capsule and future good to be experienced in an entirely new capacity. Waste has social, economic and political implications from consumerism to recycling, sustainability, city planning and even organized crime. Whether we acknowledge it or not, we cannot live without trash or producing it, yet often ignore the $75B industry surrounding it. Trash Quarterly aims to engage diverse audiences of varied interests in conversations surrounding the fascinating, innovative, and at times dramatic, world of trash.
