Amidst the celebration and gift-giving of the season, we can all look for ways to reduce waste, recycle, and save energy. During the holidays, the amount of trash produced in the US increases approximately 25%. Good planning and good intentions can help reduce some of this waste and prevent items from going into our landfill, even if we aren’t perfect every time.
Click above for info on properly disposing of holiday items with LRSWMD and some ideas for reducing waste this holiday season.
We see an influx of all kinds of things at our facilities, especially gift wrap, product packaging, cardboard, holiday decorations, and old electronics.
Properly separately our waste into trash and recycling helps ensure that our recycling remains uncontaminated and therefore able to be made into new products.
As always, if you have any questions about a particular item, feel free to give us a call at 888-7317.
Stay safe and happy holidays!
