This is your 'Daily Dose of Dumb.' An waste management official claims that Halloween is a big contributor to the issues that the environment faces. "The wrappers are too small for our equipment to process." Another official said "recycling systems aren’t designed to capture and sort wrappers “because they have little dollar value." Americans will buy approximately 600 million pounds of Halloween candy this year, spending $2.6 billion on bite-sized candy bars and bags of candy corn.
