Every Christmas there’s a big increase in recycling because of all the wrapping paper and boxes associated with gift giving.
But keep in mind another big waste stream created around the holidays—food waste from all those Christmas parties and family dinners.
If you’re not already in the habit of scraping your plates into a kitchen pail and dumping food waste into your green compost cart, now’s the time to start. Make it a New Year’s resolution to compost all of your food waste throughout the year. Food waste makes up about 23% of our waste stream, so diverting it from the landfill will preserve landfill space and create better compost at the same time.
