— the Holiday Festival down

highlight is the 22-foot tall
live tree in the Siuslaw River
Interpretive Center. It will
grow every year.”
Florence Mayor Joe Henry
said, “I’ll get to see my 100-
foot tree eventually.”
Florence Police
Department will have a bike
patrol to visit with communi-
ty members during the event.
“We enjoy having that pos-
itive experience with the
police department,” said
Reynolds. “We always have
to compete with the fire
departmen, because the fire-
fighters always get the cool
job of bringing Santa to
town.”
Santa and Mrs. Claus annu-
ally arrive in Historic Old
Town on a Siuslaw Valley
Fire and Rescue fire engine.
In addition, the Port of
Siuslaw is hosting the Light

marina.
“I’m grateful for our

Master Recyclers offer tips for holiday leftovers
Food waste represents the
single largest component of
municipal solid waste reaching
American landfills and inciner-
ators. According to a statewide
waste composition study per-
formed by the Oregon
Department of Environmental
Quality (DEQ) in 2009, more
than 450,000 tons of food
waste enter Oregon landfills
and incinerators each year —
nearly 10 percent of that goes
straight to Short Mountain
Landfill right here in Lane
County.
Between Thanksgiving and
the New Year, the United States
will waste about 5 million tons
of food. This is not only a
waste of all that turkey, pie and
mashed potatoes, but also a
waste of all the resources that
went into growing, processing,
shipping, cooling and cooking
that food.
This holiday season, consid-
er these tips to help reduce food
waste at home while also help-
ing save time, money and the
planet.
Carefully calculate
With so many guests and so
many items to serve, some-
times it's difficult to determine
how much food you should
prepare for your holiday feast.
Whole Foods Market has
developed a handy calculator
to help ensure you offer plenty
of food without being left with
too much.
Visit www.wholefoodsmar-
ket.com/holidays/servings-cal-
culator to view the Whole
Foods
Market
Holiday
Entertaining
Servings
Calculator.
Freeze freely
Before you begin cooking,
make room in your freezer.
According to the United States
Department of Agriculture
(USDA), cooked turkey lasts
four months in the freezer —
plenty of time to use up your
leftovers without eating turkey
for every meal.
Package meals
Take the work out of eating
leftovers by storing a little of
everything in several meal-
sized containers. Then when
you want a quick meal, grab
one of the containers from the
refrigerator or freezer and heat
it in the microwave.
Reuse cleverly
After gorging yourself on a
holiday meal, you and your
family may want a little time
away from the leftovers. Try
spicing them up by using them
to make other meals — use
ham to make split pea soup; or
turn mashed potatoes into
dumplings.
You can use turkey to make
comforting homemade turkey-
and-noodle soup or turkey pot-
pies.
For more clever leftover
recipes, visit cdkitchen.com.
Send goodies with guests
What better way to handle
leftovers than to give them to
your guests? Divide and con-
quer your extra food by send-
ing some home with friends
and family in reusable contain-
ers.
Compost the rest
Purchase and cook less;
compost the rest.
Repeat; home composting
can significantly reduce the
amount of material you put out
on trash day. By composting
food scraps and food-soiled
paper you may even be able to
reduce your trash can size or
reduce the frequency of trash
pick-ups.
Visit www.lanecounty.org
/compost for more information
about the benefits of home
composting and learn how to
get started.
Out to dinner?
If you eat out this holiday
season look for restaurants the
display the Love Food Not
Waste decal. These businesses
are committed to diverting
food waste for composting.
Visit www.eugenerecycles
.org for more information. For

ing businesses, visit www.
