The World Bank estimates that urban centres around the world will generate 2.2 billion metric tonnes of solid waste every year by 2025 (up from 1.3 billion MT in 2012). With no perceived value, most of this waste is sent to landfills or worse, it is tipped into open unsanitary pits that pose massive ecological challenges.
The World Bank also projects that spending on the management of solid waste will rise globally to over $375 billion annually by 2025 (from $205b in 2012), with most of this increase taking place in the developing world.
