4th Saturday

We are always interested in the waste signage that RAs produce independently. This was part of a larger billboard display entitled "Kitchen How-To." This board does a good job of highlighting important compostable items such as tissues and pizza boxes. It also says that the landfill is for "trash, and anything you are not sure about." I would challenge the latter claim, because I think that the landfill is overused simply because people allow themselves to put anything in it.

Edible foods that we found in trash bins in Goodhue. We cooked the ramen from the dry noodles and microwaved the pizza. A greasy breakfast for the trash crew.

A puzzling decision to throw away an entire packaged salad.

Another trash cornucopia. Everything here was found in landfill receptacles during our rounds.
