Garbology digs through our epic piles of trash to reveal not just what we throw away, but who we are and where our society is headed. The real secret at the heart of Garbology may well be the potential for a happy ending buried in our landfill.

Waste, Humes writes, is the one environmental and economic harm that ordinary working Americans have the power to change—and prosper in the process.

Garbology: Our Dirty Love Affair with Trash

Garbology Explained Garbology is the study of modern refuse and trash as well as the use of trash cans, compactors and various types of trash can liners. As an academic discipline it was pioneered at the University of Arizona and long directed by William Rathje. The project started in , originating from an idea of two students for a class project. Industries wishing to demonstrate that discards originating with their products are or are not important in the trash stream are avid followers of this research, as are municipalities wishing to learn whether some parts of the trash they collect has any salable value. The studies of garbology and archaeology often overlap, because fossil ized or otherwise time-modified trash preserved in midden s is quite often the only remnant of ancient populations that can be found.
