Most eco-conscious people think about planting trees or attending an Earth Day fair on April 22 every year. So, why would you celebrate Earth Day with a dumpster? It’s a fair question, but the answer is fairly simple – you can reduce the amount of refuse that goes to landfill by renting a dumpster and collecting recyclable materials, especially materials that are toxic to the environment.
Earth Day was first celebrated in 1970, back when there was no Environmental Protection Agency or Clean Water Act to regulate pollution. However, it was 20 years later that Earth Day saw an upswing in popularity thanks to the efforts of environmental leaders who worked to bring a worldwide focus on the day to celebrate the earth.
