Dear Robin,

What can I do to reduce holiday garbage?

Americans throw away 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, which equates to approximately one million extra tons of trash per week. For great tips on reducing the amount of waste generated during the holiday season from entertaining, sending cards, giving gifts, and decorating, check out SWANCC’s holiday waste guidelines list from SWANCC (Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County)
