This week’s question:

How will you handle holiday waste?
One of the "gifts of the season" we usually overlook is the amount of STUFF we have left over - food scraps, dead batteries, old fir trees, and more. But most of these things can be recycled or reused in some way, or at least disposed of properly.

¿Cómo maneja los desechos de las fiestas?
Uno de los “regalos de la temporada” que solemos ignorar es la cantidad de COSAS que sobran y se acumulan – sobras de alimentos, baterías inservibles, viejos pinos, y más. Sin embargo, muchas de estas cosas se pueden reciclar o reutilizar de alguna manera, o al menos deben ser desechadas de manera adecuada.
