What do the Amish do with their trash? —Donald R.
Most Amish families don’t have nearly the amount of trash the rest of Americans do. By canning their own foods they don’t have nearly the amount of tins cans. Paper trash will often be used as fire starter in the wood stove, other burnable trash will often be burned. Other trash will be sent with a garbage truck a few times a year.
