One Week of Trash in Pictures

While people are told not to litter, a lot of people still end up doing it.  Still, there are people who are good Samaritans who pick up trash and put it in a trashcan. But how much trash would add up if it were collected over the course of a week? While the end product probably would not even make a dent in amount of trash in Columbia, it is still a large enough amount.

In the end the amount of trash that was collected over a week was about on medium size trash bag’s worth. And the amount that was recycled filled up two plastic shopping bags. If you want to learn more about recycling and waste at Mizzou, then look at the Solid Waste Management and Recycling webpage and also the Sustainability Office’s Recycling webpage.
