I just took out the Sunday evening trash pickup. It included 2 bags of lawn clippings for recycling, 1 bin of recyclables and 1 bag of garbage.
Ten years ago it would have meant 4 bags to the landfill.
We're a nation of over 111 million households. Muliply that by 3 extra bags a week to the landfill.
See. We can make a difference.
