In DuPage County garbage really is a problem. We make well over 8 pounds of garbage per person, per day. Our garbage is hauled to Michigan and Wisconsin to be put into a landfill. Fortunately, we have many solutions to our garbage problem. They start with educating about the 3R's and with thinking about our garbage as resources, not trash. Once we begin looking at our garbage as a resource that can be reduced, reused or recycled, we begin solving the problem. SCARCE offers many programs to educate the young and old alike in changing the way you look at "trash".
