We want to know: What is your city or town doing about waste?
Here & Now's series "Going To Waste" is taking a closer look at this pressing, wide-ranging problem — and we'd love to hear from you. China, for example, recently stopped buying millions of tons of plastic recycling from the U.S. There's also food waste, with as much as 40 percent of food in America going uneaten.
Maybe you know about a creative new composting initiative happening where you live, or, as we learned in Baltimore, a googly eyed trash collector placed in a harbor.
