    1. Rubbish is used in America =b tonnes is a metric ton or a teragram (1,000 Kilograms).
      American Tons is 2000 lbs. It’s one of those things where a ton was made by Europe long before they officially adopted the metric system and they kept the word around. Sorta how the British pound is supposed to be 1 pound of silver and they still say poind even though they don’t use pounds as a measurement anymore o3o
