Guest Host: Matthew Felling
Trash follows a winding path after you toss it down the compactor or drop on the street (gasp!). Ideally it ends up in a recycling center of landfill. Unfortunately, it often ends up in our waterways and on our highways. Kojo explores the science and politics of litter, and learns about a local “Trash Summit”.
