Did you know the average person generates about 6 pounds of trash every single day, and that the majority of it goes to landfills? One way to help curtail the amount of trash that’s created in your home is to have one central trash can and recycling bin. Tossing garbage in the trash shouldn’t be easy; it should almost literally be a chore to add something to the garbage bin. Make the recycling bin the focal point, where members of the family have an incentive to divert trash that can be recycled. This little tip can help reduce the 30-plus pounds of trash a family produces per week.
