Yet, while the people living in today’s wealthy societies can easily escape their every day life and enter the pristine world of unspoiled nature, they cannot escape their propensity for generating garbage. On average, a person generates about half a kilogram of solid waste plus approximately 300 liters of wastewater per day. Tourists frequently generate more waste than the average. Thus, a resort that hosts about 300 guests and staff will generate over 50 tonnes of solid waste and 30,000 tonnes of wastewater per year. Where does a resort located far away from any conventional waste treatment facility dispose of all this waste?
