GREEN BAY (NBC26) — The key to every holiday season is the food and this season to help reduce the amount of waste, The Brown County Resource Recovery has a few tips to help with amount of garbage this year.

Experts suggest that you plan ahead. By preparing the right amount of food that will be eaten, you can easily reduce how much food ends up in the trash.
