Hi there, I am Ivy Thesner. I would like to use my site to explore topics pertaining to waste disposal practices. In many locations, waste disposal does not require much more than putting all refuse into the trashcan. Unfortunately, that practice often results in overflowing landfills. Unless residents are incentivized to recycle, it does not normally happen. Cities that hand out free recycling cans while campaigning heavily to promote the practice often see an uptick in compliance. Some cities are going beyond paper, glass and plastic to food recycling. On this site, I hope to explore the pros and cons of each type of waste disposal available. I would like to discuss the different ways people can improve the Earth by properly eliminating waste.
