We didn’t put out any trash for pick-up last week or on Monday. We did, however, put out some trash this morning. It’s hard to tell from the pic but that is a full bag of kitchen trash (two weeks worth), a small bag of bathroom trash, and a smaller bag of yard litter.
The good news is that we’ve gone from a big bag every week to a big bag every other week. Next week we’ll get to start taking food waste out of the trash bin and put in our brand new backyard composter (which I get to pick-up on Tuesday!)
Congrats on your endeavor and its dividends! It is amazing how much gets thrown out in a week. Great achievement.
Composting is such a simple pleasure, yet so rewarding and humble. This is all of course, after demistifying the process! Due to space limitations I compost with worms, but they get the job done.
By the way, I came across a report that came out this week about trends in sustainability. The link is below.
Good luck, Brian King
