Americans throw away 25% more trash during the Thanksgiving to New Year's holiday period than any other time of year. The extra waste amounts to 25 million tons of garbage or about 1 million extra tons per week!
If every American family wrapped just 3 presents in re-used materials, it would save enough paper to cover 45,000 football fields.

Please be advised that cart deliveries/exchanges and collections for large items, appliances, and televisions will be suspended during these days to make sure that our streets stay clean and beautiful for the holidays.
