Abstract
Every day, Americans fill their trash bins with grass clippings, coffee grounds, and many other types of organic wastes. Organic materials-e.g., paper, wood, yard trimmings, food scraps-constitute 67 percent of the weight of America's municipal solid waste (MSW) stream, or more than 140 million tons in 1996. A significant portion of these materials, including newspaper, office paper, and corrugated cardboard, are recovered through reuse or recycling. Yard trimmings and food scraps, however, which account for 25 percent of MSW, or 50 million tons per year, are often not recovered. As a WasteWise partner, you can take the lead in giving your organic wastes back to the Earth. Contents of report: Yard Trimmings; Food Scraps; Compost Innovations.
