Market Dynamics
According to the World Bank document 2020, the amount of worldwide trash generated in city regions is growing quicker than the urbanization charge. In common, everybody produces 1.2 kg of waste, and globally 7.4 million lots of trash are produced in step with day. These wastes are generated from residential and company regions along with colleges, workplaces, market locations, eating places, households, industries, agriculture, business complexes, and many others.
Rising awareness regarding hygiene will increase the trash bags demand globally.

The trash bags witness a high adoption rate in the developed markets as compared to emerging economies. This is primarily attributed to the high disposable incomes in developed economies, leading to high living standards. In developed economies, such as the US, Germany, and Canada, trash bags are considered a mandatory commodity than unessential commodities in developing economies. The rapid growth in urbanization across emerging markets has led to a significant increase in the trash bags adoption rate. Continued product developments and awareness in these regions, coupled with increasing disposable incomes, are expected to enhance trash bags' consumption in the overall global market.

Trash bags are widely used in industrial, retail, and institutional areas. The high manufacturing of star-sealed bottom trash bags is majorly in demand globally due to its high durability and storage capacity features. The product development, the increasing purchasing power of buyers in developing economies, and strict government regulations coupled with awareness programs are widely increasing the demand and consumption of trash bags worldwide during the forecast period.

Increasing demand for easily recycled trash bags

Technological development influences the sales of trash bags, and changes in regulatory scenarios support the trash bags market’s growth. Consumers' evolving lifestyle, increasing health and environmental awareness, and supportive environmental policies implemented by various governments worldwide are the major factors responsible for the increasing global demand for easily recycled trash bags and, thereby, their market growth. Owing to its value-added applications, right from handling waste to transportation and trash distribution, the market for trash bags is expected to create significant change and further raise investment opportunities for companies operating in the market, especially in developing countries such as India and Mexico. Besides, the trash bags market is expected to continue to grow steadily in developed countries, wherein the consumer demand for trash storage and its management is high. The market's main growth drivers are private consumers, local packaging firms, and retailers, focusing more on delivering the local market product.

However, the trash bag market's sustainability majorly depends on new product innovations, such as bags with enhanced odor control benefits. Additionally, big and small retailers and increasing consumer preference for using cheap local products have created a highly competitive business environment for big brands of garbage bags worldwide.

New investigation: U.S. manufacturing facility released a potent climate pollutant equivalent to 1 billion pounds of CO2

Toxic-Free Future logo

Daikin America facilities in Alabama are a major source of toxic PFAS pollution and ozone-depleting chemicals.

…Toxic chemicals and climate change are connected: manufacturing PFAS chemicals not only pollutes people and the environment, but releases potent greenhouse gases, adding to the climate crisis.”

— Erika Schreder, Toxic-Free Future

SEATTLE, WA, UNITED STATES, September 16, 2021 / — A new investigative report, released today by Toxic-Free Future, reveals for the first time that a U.S. chemical manufacturing facility released a potent climate pollutant equivalent to one billion pounds of carbon dioxide in one year. Daikin America facilities in Alabama are a major source of toxic PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) pollution and releases of ozone-depleting chemicals that contribute to health problems and climate change. Scientists and health advocates are calling for phase-out of PFAS “forever chemicals” to protect communities and address the climate crisis.

“This is a sad but clear example of how toxic chemicals and climate change are connected: manufacturing PFAS chemicals not only pollutes people and the environment, but releases potent greenhouse gases, adding to the climate crisis,” explains Erika Schreder, co-author of the report and science director for Toxic-Free Future. “Exposure to PFAS is known to be toxic and dangerous, and so is the process of making them. The safest thing we can do is to stop making them, and we need action at all levels to make this happen, including from Congress, grocery and fast-food retailers, and state governments.”

The report, Path of Toxic Pollution: How making “forever chemicals” for food packaging threaten people and the climate, finds that Daikin America’s Alabama facilities are the only U.S. manufacturer of PFAS chemicals for food packaging and are the nation’s #2 polluter of HCFC-22. Daikin releases the potent greenhouse gas during the process of manufacturing PFAS. HCFC-22 has been the subject of global restrictions because it damages the atmosphere by depleting the ozone layer, which protects against harmful solar radiation that may cause skin cancer and cataracts, and is a potent greenhouse gas with a global warming potential estimated at 5,280 times that of carbon dioxide. Daikin America reported releasing a total of 240,584 pounds of HCFC-22 from its Decatur, Alabama operations in 2019一the greenhouse gas equivalent of more than one billion pounds of carbon dioxide. On an annual basis, these releases constitute the greenhouse gas equivalent of driving 125,000 passenger cars for a year.

“This report illustrates the connection between toxic pollution and the climate crisis, both of which disproportionately harm communities of color,” said Peggy Shepard, Co-Founder and Executive Director of WE ACT for Environmental Justice. “Not only is Daikin America endangering people with the PFAS chemicals it sells for food packaging, which is why we helped pass a law banning it for that use in New York State, but we now know that the production of this toxic chemical is accelerating the climate crisis. The entire world is scrambling to reduce greenhouse gas emissions before their damage to our climate is beyond repair, yet we are letting a company dump hundreds of thousands of pounds of hydrochlorofluorocarbons into the atmosphere so that it can produce ‘forever chemicals’ that poison our communities? Where is the justice in that?”

HCFC-22 emissions are banned worldwide through the Montreal Protocol, a global treaty, but permitted through a loophole that allows companies like Daikin America to manufacture it as an intermediate in producing another chemical一in this case, toxic PFAS “forever chemicals.”

The report details the path of toxic pollution that results when making and using PFAS-treated packaging for fast food, starting with Daikin’s facilities. Daikin’s chemicals pose a threat to human health and the environment throughout the process, from production and manufacturing to use and disposal.

“Members of my community have been drinking poisoned water for decades because of plants like the local Daikin America facilities,” says Brenda Hampton, founder of Concerned Citizens of WMEL Water Authority. “And many of my neighbors are experiencing health problems that we're concerned may be due to this toxic PFAS exposure. As a grandmother, this worries me to no end. No one's drinking water should be poisoned to make burger wrappers.”

From dangerous exposures within its facilities to the greater Decatur community and beyond, the path of toxic pollution from Daikin America is broad. Paper mills across the country use Daikin’s PFAS treatment to create oil- and grease-resistant paper, often used for fast-food sandwiches.

A major use of greaseproof paper is to hold fast-food sandwiches, including the millions of Whoppers and Big Macs served each day. Based on Daikin’s submittals to the FDA, the report estimates about 21,900 pounds of PFAS treatment have been used for Burger King’s Whopper wrappers each year, and 24,700 pounds in McDonald’s Big Mac packaging each year.

“Retailers are playing an incredibly important role in moving the marketplace away from these toxic ‘forever chemicals,’” explains Mike Schade, director of Mind the Store, a program of Toxic-Free Future. “With many thousands of pounds of PFAS in circulation due to their use in food packaging, we applaud those companies that commit to phasing out these toxics in food packaging. Both Wendy’s and McDonald’s have made this commitment earlier this year, but Burger King has failed to act. Burger King needs to step up and act immediately to protect its customers and our communities from these ‘forever chemicals.’” Toxic-Free Future and its Mind the Store program created a petition to Burger King and its parent company, Restaurant Brands International, urging them to stop making toxic trash by banning PFAS in its food packaging.

The report also finds that Daikin’s process for making PFAS threatens workers’ lives: at least three workers have been killed on the job in Decatur. The drinking water for communities downstream of Daikin’s facilities has been contaminated by Daikin and another facility, with Daikin paying $5 million to the local water utility to address the contamination. U.S. EPA data shows that the community within three miles of the Daikin facility is majority African American. And when paper mills apply Daikin’s PFAS treatment to paper, they can release PFAS in wastewater, contaminating rivers and sludge.

Since the outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to almost 213 countries around the globe with the World Health Organization declaring it a public health emergency on March 11, 2020.
• The outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic had led to partial or complete shutdown of production facilities, which do not come under essential goods, owing to prolonged lockdown in major countries such as the U.S., China, Japan, India, and Germany. It has led to either closure or suspension of their production activities in most of the industrial units across the world.
• Many industries have been shut down due to lack of raw material availability and disruptions in the supply chain, owing to the virus outbreak. The worldwide lockdown has suspended the municipal electricity production, on-site electricity production, and transportation fuel activities, which resulted in declining demand for waste-derived biogas industry.
• Manufacture of oil & gas and other products across the globe came to a halt due to unavailability of raw materials and shortage of labor, which hampered the market growth.

Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Security Week launches this coming November 2021

Under the patronage of HH Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed, ADAFSA announces the launch of the Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Security Week this coming November 2021

ABU DHABI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, September 13, 2021 / — Under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs, Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Safety Authority, the Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Safety Authority announced the launch of the first edition of the "Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Security Week 2021", from 21 to 25 November at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center (ADNEC).

Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Security Week will feature numerous events related to sustainable agriculture, food production and food security issues, including the launch of the Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Security Conference, in partnership with the World Food Security Forum, and a Global Sustainable Agriculture Awards Ceremony. It will honour the innovators and creative solutions that drive innovation in the sectors of agriculture and food security, and it will push them towards growth and prosperity through a combination of related seminars, lectures and workshops.

The week will also host – for the first time – a Symposium of the International Federation of Beekeepers "Apimondia", founded in 1897 in Rome. The Symposium will complement "Api-Arab Expo", which aims to develop the honeybee-breeding sector and enhance the productivity of honeybees in the region.

His Excellency Saeed Al Bahri Salem Al Ameri, Director General of the Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Safety Authority said: “The launch of Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Security Week represents the critical importance of food production, sustainable agriculture and food security and is consistent with the insightful vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Commander The Supreme Council of the Armed Forces. His Highness is keen to direct the provision of all necessary capabilities to secure food in a high-quality manner that guarantees the highest safety standards. The week’s activities are in line with the strategy established by His Highness Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Presidential Affairs, and Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Safety Authority. The strategy aims to ensure food safety and an ecological sustainable development in the agricultural sector in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.”

His Excellency added that the global crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic has magnified the importance of cooperation and joint work between countries, organizations and specialized companies to maximize the production of what can be grown locally based on modern technology and efficient natural resource management, in addition to encouraging agricultural investment, strengthening the system, supplying food, making it sustainable and easily accessible at all times.

Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Security Week 2021 is the largest event for sustainable agriculture and food security in the MENA and Asia Pacific region. In addition to the variety of specialized events, such as conferences, exhibitions, and workshops, the program also includes two major exhibitions with a successful track record in Abu Dhabi: Global Forum for Agricultural Innovations (GFIA), which has attracted more than 50,000 participants, since its launch in 2014, during which more than 1,500 innovations in sustainable agriculture were exhibited, and VIV MEA, an exhibition which covers animal health and production, which focuses on developing livestock and producing dairy, fish, poultry and eggs.

Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Security Week also attaches great importance to the logistics of the agribusiness sector, as it hosts Cold Chain Expo, an exhibition and conference that sheds light on how goods are taken to market and distributed globally with the least amount of waste and losses.

The events address important topics such as vertical farming, hydroponics, indoor agriculture, aquaculture, and agriculture in controlled environments, as the pioneers of these fields in the world showcase the latest innovations and solutions needed for sustainable food production. Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Security Week 2021 will host various emerging companies, innovators, and individuals who are looking to establish new business partnerships and take advantage of the financing opportunities provided through the Ag-Tech fund. The Abu Dhabi Investment Office, to encourage food technology companies to establish and localize their operations in Abu Dhabi, launched the fund, which amounts to one billion dirhams.

More than 400 exhibitors and sponsoring companies will participate in the Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Security Week, while the joint programs present more than 150 international speakers, bringing with them a major global alliance of strategic partnerships that will drive the success of the initiative.

The week is supported by the Ministry of Presidential Affairs, the UAE Ministry of Food and Water Security, the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment and other global entities, including the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the University of Arizona, the University of California at Davis, the Open Global Data Initiative for Agriculture and Nutrition, Agritecture Consulting, Global GAP, The Netherlands University of Wageningen, and the Netherlands Investment Program.

The Global Forum for Food Security was previously held with the support and patronage of Her Excellency Maryam Bint Mohammed Al Muhairi, Minister of State for Food and Water Security, the representative of the country in the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, and at the time, discussed the issues relating to local, regional and international food security together with prominent experts in this field.

Mohanad Terkawi, VP Exhibitions commented, “As a long-term partner of Abu Dhabi Agriculture and Food Safety Authority, GFIA is proud to be part of this visionary programme that will place Abu Dhabi and the UAE at the heart of the global Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security Agenda. Now, more than ever, is a critical time for these sectors, and we look forward to providing a Live Event format as well as a Digital Platform that will ensure we offer a truly global exchange of knowledge at this critical stage in global development.”

How To Dispose Your Furniture Properly in 2021

Junk Removal

Furniture Removal With Junk Station

MEADVILLE, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, September 9, 2021 / — Furniture is expensive, but it's also an investment. That means that when you are looking to dispose of your furniture, you need to do so responsibly. Several steps can be taken to ensure your furniture ends up back on the market and not sitting in a landfill for years!

1. Make A List Of All Your Furniture And What You Want To Do With It

Having a lot of furniture can make you forget what you need and what you need to let go. This is why it helps to make a list. When you are making your list, consider the following questions: Do I need this furniture anymore? Can someone else benefit from this furniture more than me? If so, who would that be? If not, will I ever use or find another purpose for it in the future. Once you are done listing, you can decide if you can sell, donate, or recycle that furniture.

2. Sell Any Items That Are In Good Condition

The next thing you need to do is decide if there is any furniture that you do not need but are in pristine condition. If you are not using them anymore, then why not put your items on sale? This way, someone else can enjoy the furniture while you make some money to spend elsewhere.

3. Donate Any Gently Used Or New Household Items To Charity

If there are still in good condition but do not want it for yourself or it is hard to let go because of their sentimental value, why not consider donating them so that other people can still enjoy and use them. Some charity institution will gladly take your old furniture off your hands.

4. Recycle Anything Broken, Old, Or Damaged Beyond Repair

There are many things that you can do with your broken, old or damaged furniture other than disposing of them. For example, you can recycle it by breaking it down into its raw materials and using those as a base for other household items. By doing this, it can help reduce wood and plastic waste in landfills. You can also help our environment by recycling and reusing.

5. Hire A Professional Junk Removal Company To Get Rid Of The Rest For You So You Don't Have To Worry About It!

MIP V’s investment will enable LRS to scale its rapid growth as the Midwest’s leading waste diversion, recycling and portable services company

Investment will enable LRS to scale its rapid growth as the Midwest’s leading waste diversion, recycling and portable services company

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES, September 9, 2021 / — LRS, the Midwest’s leading independent waste diversion, recycling and portable services provider, today announced it has completed a significant equity investment to accommodate and scale its growth by MIP V, an Americas-focused, $6.9 billion unlisted infrastructure fund managed by Macquarie Asset Management (MAM). Financial terms were not disclosed.

The resulting ownership structure will accelerate LRS’ growth trajectory and solidify its leadership position as the largest privately-held waste, recycling and portable services provider in the Midwest and one of the largest in North America; the investment will have no impact on the company’s existing services, operations or executive leadership team.

“At this juncture in our corporate evolution, we couldn’t be more delighted to receive this sizeable investment from MIP V. With their deep knowledge of the space and the capital and support dedicated to our team, we will be an even more disruptive force in the waste and recycling industry. This partnership will propel our competitive leadership position throughout the Midwest, enable future-focused investments in technological innovation and allow us to continue our rapid growth both organically as well as through M&A,” said LRS Chief Executive Officer Alan T. Handley.

MAM-managed funds have invested over $2.9 billion in the waste industry in the Americas since 2007 through the Macquarie Infrastructure Partners series of funds, including investments in Waste Industries, WCA, GFL Environmental, WIN Waste Innovations, Solví and now LRS.

“We are excited to partner with Alan and the rest of the LRS management team in supporting their next stage of growth. MAM has significant experience supporting waste businesses like LRS and invests in people, processes and systems to strengthen existing platforms, support future growth and improve performance,” said Paul Mitchener, Senior Managing Director with MAM.

The investment follows a year of aggressive growth as evidenced by the acquisition of 12 leading waste, recycling and portable toilet companies in Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana, Minnesota and Iowa. Additionally, the company has experienced significant organic growth through the awarding of numerous large municipal contracts including the entire City of Chicago Blue Cart recycling contract.

Since its formation in 2013, LRS has grown from a single location with 200 employees and annual revenues of less than $50 million to a $375 million super-regional leader in waste diversion and recycling. Handley said LRS’ rapid rise has helped the company compete in municipalities and states throughout the greater Midwest, and the company will continue to seek best-in-class acquisition opportunities.

Goldman Sachs served as lead investment banker, Much Shelist provided legal representation, and Capstone Partners led financial advisory services for LRS.

J.P. Morgan acted as exclusive financial advisor to MIP V and White & Case acted as legal counsel.

About LRS

LRS is North America’s fifth largest privately-held waste and recycling company. Since 2013, LRS has specialized in providing comprehensive, fully integrated waste diversion and recycling services for over 1.5 million residential and commercial customers in Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Indiana, Michigan and eastern Iowa. Diversified and growing exponentially, LRS also offers affordable roll-off container services, C&D recycling, portable restroom rentals, municipal and commercial street sweeping, mulch distribution, on-site storage, and temporary fencing.

LRS owns and operates 29 facilities, safely deploys a fleet of fuel-efficient trucks, and thrives on the passion of 1,400 full-time employees.
