English term or phrase: 250 million tons (227 million t)
The USA produces about 250 million tons (227 million t) of trash every day.
想确认一下:这里的250 million tons (227 million t)分别指的是公吨与短吨吗?(1公吨=1.1023短吨)

Explanation:
2. ( US ) short ton , Also called: net ton a unit of weight equal to 2000 pounds or 907.184 kilograms
3. metric ton , Also called: tonne a unit of weight equal to 1000 kilograms
經過計算之後, 我認為那兩個數字是250 million short tons 和 227 million metric tons.
