The Insight

We never really think about where our trash goes. But pretty soon, it’s going to start piling up. Small changes at home can lead to a cleaner community for everyone, and even help save money in the long run. Reduce the Trash CT engages in a much needed conversation about our waste solution while making it feel approachable and easy.
