Most trash is mixed with vegetable wastes and dumped outside cities and towns, where it blows all over the countryside or gets lit on fire and smolders for days or weeks. Our farm recycles everything possible, and does its best to minimize plastic waste completely. We do, however, burn what remains, as it beats any reasonable alternative we can think of.
