Garbage day is more than just garbage. It’s recycling, composting, donating and then finally dumping. Even with all the de-cluttering we have been doing only one can of garbage went to the curb today! The green cone has been up and running all week so maybe that made the difference.
Recycling was a bit over the top this week. Single use water bottles were found in our van after some of the family went to the zoo so they were put out for recycling. It’s too bad that I didn’t think ahead and pack the family reusable water bottles for the zoo. Some recycling from my work was put out too. So much work waste could be recycled and isn’t.
If you look very closely there are newspapers in the pile. Two newspapers were delivered without permission this week. Hopefully this will not continue into next week. I’d prefer not to have to call again.
More donations were put into the van and need to go off to the thrift store. Two of the items are robes. I had three robes. The big huge fluffy one that used up too much space plus the silky one had to go. The serviceable medium weight one got permission to stay. How many robes does a person really need? We still have a long way to go in minimising our waste but it’s starting.
Have a great day,
