Food Piling Up

The Department of Natural Resources sorted through some landfills around the state in October. One thing investigators found was that the amount of food waste has nearly doubled since 2011. The good news is that corrugated cardboard waste has gone down a lot since 2011.

The DNR says plastics, such as bags and film, continue to cause issues with recyclers…and that means the plastics could end up in the landfills.
