Un-Recycled Plastic Food Packaging is Filling Up Wisconsin Landfills

According to an April 23, 2020 Madison, Wisconsin TV station WKOW 27 story https://wkow.com/2020/04/23/shift-in-food-packaging-leads-to-plastic-problem-at-landfills/ “… Over the past decade… Many products have moved from cans and cardboard boxes to plastic packaging. That change is adding to the already troublesome plastic waste problem landfills are facing all over Wisconsin … A good example of a change in the industry is tuna fish. It used to be packaged in tin cans, but now we are seeing companies use plastic pouches instead … those pouches and most chip and other snack bags are made from multi-layered plastics that can't be recycled ... More people are grocery shopping and eating at home, leading to more plastic bags and food packaging thrown away …” - #PlasticWaste #FoodPackaging #Recycling #SingleUsePlastic #WKOW
