Did you know that additional food waste, packaging, wrapping paper and decorations increases household waste by more than 25 percent? Here’s some tips to help you have reduce, recycle and have a greener holiday season.
If you get new electronics this season donate the old. Search the Choose to Reuse Directory for donation opportunities, recycle electronics at a drop-off facility, or find additional disposal options at RethinkRecycling.com.
If you are hosting a holiday party, use reusable tableware to reduce waste and help your guests recycle by providing clearly marked recycling containers. Compost your food scraps either in your backyard or by bringing them to a drop-off facility.
