is an apple core litter?
today on air with kenny jones – the crew got on the topic of littering. it all kicked off when a certain on air staffer claimed it was okay to throw an apple core on the street because it was biodegradable.
i won’t mention any names, but it starts with a “c” and and ends with an “hristabel“.
there was a heated discussion on just what is considered litter. here’s what the on air contingent had to say about the tossing out you wet waste, dry waste or any kind of wast at all…
