How can I reduce my landfill fees?
Reducing the amount of trash you produce and recycling as much as you can results in lower landfill fees. Some things you can do are: buy only what you need; buy in bulk whenever possible; look for items packaged in recyclable materials; compost your kitchen waste at home; buy reusable products, such as cloth napkins, rather than single use; take unwanted products in good condition to thrift stores or have a yard sale; and shop at yard sales, farmers markets and thrift stores.
