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.
