After SPIN! Video - "How can we reduce landfill use?"
Published November 25, 2019
After SPIN! "Question to Cash Michaels and Donna Martinez – We produce large amounts of garbage. I’ve heard it is more than 2,000 pounds per person each year. In order to keep from filling up our landfills many local governments began recycling programs, selling items like paper, plastics and carboard to private firms, who then sold them to China. The market has dried up and instead of local governments getting paid to handle recyclable matter they are now having to pay. Should we discontinue recycle programs? If so, what do we do with the increase dumping in our landfills? What’s your solution?"
