What’s Your Least Favorite Holiday Dish?

It’s not garbage anymore! Compost unwanted holiday leftovers

Americans throw out 25 percent more trash between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day than any other time of the year. A lot of that waste is leftover food.

For every delicious holiday meal, there’s one dish that gets left cold. Green bean casserole. Jellied cranberry sauce. Mincemeat pie. Giblets. Jello salad. Oysters. Fruitcake. One person’s culinary delight is another person’s compost maker.

Curb your wasteline this holiday season and put your unwanted leftovers in your food and yard waste cart, where instead of going to the landfill, they’ll be made into compost for local parks and gardens.

What’s the one Thanksgiving dish you won’t be thankful for this year? Seattle residents can vote for their “least favorite” holiday dish by November 21 and be entered to win a kitchen compost collector!

Results will be announced November 22.
