ADVANCING RECYCLING IN TEXAS
While the holiday season brings friends and family together for fun, food and gifts, it also brings a lot of waste. As our partners at the Recycling Partnership have noted, research at Stanford University found that, "Americans throw away 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day than any other time of the year"—which amounts to 25 million tons of extra garbage! To help you curb your contribution to this added waste, we offer some tips below for recycling your holiday cheer.
