The rubbish must be visible for societies to take action against waste generation and management

There are societies that manage waste better, that manage waste worse. There are also societies that generate waste less, and those that produce more. I mentioned the two points, and in a way that pretty much covers the entire spectrum for both points, ie in “a some do more and some do less” manner. Like duh right.

If I had a topic statement to write for a dissertation, one direction I might pursue is waste management and its visibility, and how its literal visibility leads to attitudes in society towards garbage generation and management.

An off the cuff question: a city’s central waste management agency might have done so well a job, be it burning thrash or or dumping them in landfills, that the residents do not see the waste piling up. As a result, are they likely continue to produce waste “without consequences”?
