Trash Diary 1/12/11

My waste generated from Wednesday.

Trash:
Napkins, paper towels and tissues (a few each, plus a pocket clean-out with some crumpled up ones left over from the last time I wore my coat.)
Orange juice carton (yes, this is recyclable, but I got it on the go and didn’t have a plastic bag to put the empty in my bag to carry around to work in order to recycle).
Straw (usually I decline, but drinking oj from a little carton on a moving train without a straw leads to oj all over the front of one’s shirt).

Recycled:
Paper bag
foil
a few pieces of paper at work
AM metro newspaper (I like doing the ez crossword in it)

Saved:
Paper cup with lid
