Holiday Recycling Tips
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates the average American household throws away nearly 125 pounds of trash per week. From Thanksgiving to New Year’s, Americans discard 25 percent more trash than normal, or approximately 940 pounds of waste. Roughly 80 percent of what is discarded during the holidays could be recycled or reused. Please click here to view the flyer that provides tips for reducing, reusing, and recycling materials during the holidays.
