Reducing Landfill Waste

Group 2

Big picture

| The Issue |

We're doing landfills because people are putting plastic in their trashcan and not recycling and the plastic can blow out of the landfill and get in the rivers and lakes and harm fish and other animals. Event though the trash is in the landfills, it is bad for the soil, ground water, people's health, and wildlife near it.

Interview Quotes:

Rochonda: ”reduce trash”

Ryan: ”Thinks it could work if put in action”

Matt: ”Running out of space”

Jodi,Rachle,Judi:” replace item”

Dylan:” Think worthy interview”

Harrison:” compost will be good for everybody”

Andrea:” pollution smells bad”

Michele: “Big trash”

| Take Action |

Our action for this issue is we are going to make different types of bins. For example, old electronic bins, recycle bins, trash bins, and compost bins. The recycling bin will go to the recycling place and the electronic bin will go to the place where they will recycle them and the trash bin will go to the landfill, and the compost bin will go to the worms. Having these bins will allow things to be more sorted and there will be less trash. On a local level we should educate and inform one another about the issue and separate trash in the according bin. On a state level we can make a petition and see what different states laws have regarding the use and distribution of material. On the national level we should protest and make more petitions to create laws that require everybody to put trash in the correct pile it needs to go.
