Gaithersburg Goes Green!

gaithersburg goes green

Did you know that the average restaurant produces 100,000 pounds of garbage each year? That’s the same size as some of the largest whales in the ocean, and more than the weight of 10 elephants combined! The majority of this garbage will end up in landfills, when in reality, 95% of that waste can be, and should be, recycled.
