[greenyes] Amount of waste generated per new car?


Hello all, does anyone know of a source of information about the amount of
waste (ideally broken down into types) that is generated by the manufacture
of new cars? I'm hoping to find out the total waste, including tailings
from the mining process and everything. I would also love similar
information about other goods such as computers, appliances, etc. I
recently read that to make a 5-pound laptop computer generates ten tons of
waste-- pretty amazing if it is true.

Thanks in advance for any help,
