As part of Trash Day for No Impact Week, (learn more here and sign up) we're taking a deeper look into trash, recycling and where things go after we throw them away.

We asked readers to submit photos of their own trash and to report on where their local trash ends up. He are some of the best photos we received. You can upload your own photos by clicking the participate button below.

A Teeny Tiny Amount of Trash!
myzerowaste:
Since June 2008, we've been reducing our weekly landfill waste. We now put out less than 100gms per week and have not had our rubbish bin collected from curbside since the beginning of 2009. We aim to reach the end of the year before having our bin emptied!



Here is a photo of our rubbish for one week.
