The City of Madison Streets Division has a new section on their website where you can find tips on how to green up your holiday and save the planet. According to Recycling Coordinator George Dreckman, we generate 25 percent more waste during the holiday season.
Among the suggestions are using more china and silverware instead of serving food on paper plates and plastic cups, giving gift certificates for local events and services, or giving the gift of your time.
“Two of my favorite gifts are cloth shopping bags and rechargeable batteries,” Dreckmann said. “It will help your friends reduce waste all year round.”
