New York City produces at least 12,000 tons of garbage per day and all that Garbage that New York City produces get exported to other states and cities to be buried on their landfills.

New York City has no landfills or incinerators so they have to export their garbage to other states which costs around $300,000,000.00 per year.

The average person in New York produces 25 lbs of trash per day and all that trash has to be exported.
