Trash Day Challenge

The trash day challenge is to consider all trash bins off-limits!  In 2010 the U.S. produced more than 250 million tons of trash- 4.43 pounds per person per day.

We challenge you to not make any trash and to reduce, reuse, and not throw anything away.

Did you know?

Georgia Southern’s trash goes to a landfill 120 miles away in Dry Branch, right near Macon, because Statesboro’s landfill is already full!?
