Eli Loudenback, 12, weighs his family's trash and recycling for the week while his mother, Amy, writes down the results at their Brush Prairie home this month. Eli's father, Robert, and 5-year-old sister, Romy, watch in the background. The Loudenbacks are one of five families currently participating in the Clark County's Wastebusters program in an effort to reduce their household waste volume.
