The holidays are upon us, which means the decorations are out. The holidays can be a beautiful time of the year; however they can also be a very wasteful time of the year. From trees cut down for decorations, to wasted strands of lights, not to mention all of the paper waste from gifts. Americans annually throw away four million tons of just paper trash from gift wrap and shopping bags and approximately 2.6 billion holiday cards are sold each year, which is enough to fill a football field 10 stories high (Source: RecycleWorks).
Some things are easy to know how to dispose of. Trash goes in the trash can, which goes in the dumpster, which goes to the landfill. Recyclables get sorted and go in the recycle bin, but, what about those tricky things that you aren’t sure how to dispose of them? Special waste can be tricky to try to get rid of, but our staff at Quad Cities Landfill is here to help in any way we can. Follow these few tips to properly dispose of your special waste.
