Each year, waste in the United States increases 25% between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day—about 1 million extra tons.
Minnkota, our recycling processor, has released their 2019 Holiday Recycling Guide
The most common non-recyclables contaminating the recycling waste stream during the holiday season include bubble wrap, cellophane, string/rope, ribbons and bows, and Styrofoam and other forms of polystyrene foam.
