The Holidays are a season of giving, getting, baking, decorating and feasting! All this joy comes with a little baggage however…excess waste baggage that is! American’s generate 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Year’s than any other time of the year, adding up to a million more tons of waste every week. But, it’s not all trash. Some of that waste is recyclable, and needed for the feedstock to make new products.
