Food Packaging-Environmental Impact

MSW consists of items commonly thrown away, food wraps, yard trimmings, including packages and durable items such as refrigerators. Legislative and regulatory efforts to control packaging are based on the mistaken perception that packaging of foods and beverages are the largest component of MSW. Food packaging is an exceptional contributor to MSW because food is the only product i.e. typically consumed thrice a day by every individual. Accordingly, food packaging contributes for almost two-thirds of total packaging waste by volume.
