Clark County issues waste challenge to the public



Clark County says its average resident sends 3.1 pounds of waste to a landfill every day, and it’s challenging you to do better.

The Clark County Environmental Services department is seeking local households to compete in the county’s second waste reduction challenge, called “Wastebusters.”

The competition begins March 9 and pits households against each other in a good-natured competition to reduce their overall waste.

Interested participants are expected to attend an orientation session, record weekly trash volume and submit updates about what they learn.

The household with the biggest improvement will be awarded a prize and the title, “Top Wastebuster.”

Residents interested in the Wastebusters challenge should explain in a couple of paragraphs why they want to participate in the challenge, and email a request by Feb. 15 to
