Where It Goes Once It Leaves Your Curb

Once trash is collected from your curb or emptied from your wastebasket at work, you probably don't give it another thought. But Metro Waste Authority knows where nearly 2,000 tons of trash ends up every day – roughly 18 percent of the state's annual waste. Metro Park East Landfill, in eastern Polk County, is a state-of-the-art landfill.
