Feedback Friday: How Much Are You Recycling, Philadelphia?

Let’s break it down by the numbers…The average American:

  • Generates an average of 4.6 pounds of trash per day
  • 2.5 lbs of that trash goes to landfills
  • Only 2.1 lbs of trash is recycled or incinerated

How much are you recycling, Philly?  What can you recycle that you aren’t currently?  What are you having problems recycling?

Let us know in the comments.
