I like this one.  My family tries very, very, hard to narrow our waste stream.  It’s evident every week on our street.  Our neighborhood’s garbage service uses bright red bags, and in the snow we’ve had they stand out.  Our home only has a red bag in front of it once a month or less often.  On the other hand, our recycling is always piled much higher than the neighbor’s.  We even have two bins to everyone else’s single one.

Finally, we participate in a terrific local compost program run by an eight-year old boy.  Carter’s Compost collects food scraps from around the community to turn into compost.  What a great service to my little town!

This infographic helps spells out where all that food goes.
