    Re: waste/rubbish

    Rubbish is garbage, lies, or a uniquely British colloquialism, referring to something bad or implausible.

    Waste in addition to being garbage or excrement can also be a verb to waste (to throw away unnecesarily) or to waste away (to starve to death)

    Rubbish is waste, and waste is rubbish. In the sense of garbage, there is very little difference.
