Your worst Thanksgiving dish? Take the poll

Americans throw out 25 percent more trash between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day than at any other time of the year,

To encourage us to compost food waste and to draw attention to the issue, Seattle Public Utilities is asking customers to name the Thanksgiving dish they hate the most.

“For every delicious holiday meal, there’s one dish that gets left cold,” the city says in a news release. “One person’s culinary delight is another person’s compost maker.”

SPU ran a similar contest in Halloween, asking for the worst candy, in an effort to convince customers to compost their leftovers.

So far, giblets are leading the Thanksgiving contest, with aspic a close second.

To enter the contest, click here.

Customers can choose one of the selections or add their own, and can enter their email to win a prize, a kitchen compost collector. It’s open to Seattle residents only.
