Talkin’ Trash

December 10, 2009

So, we have trash day practically every day at our house! Monday=Lawn, Tuesday and Friday=Trash and Wednesday=Recycling. It’s a lot to remember, which is why last week Taylor took our trash pan out on Sunday night and it hung out for a couple days, clinging to the curb like a frightened goat for 48 hours while cars whizzed by. The trash can tipped over at one point, but all the trash stayed inside, thankfully. However the top got lost and I had to poke around in the neighbors shrubs with a flashlight before I found it. Well, last night I got home and saw the recycling bin topless too. However, this time the top was on the side of the road in approximately 47 pieces. I called the county expecting a big argument about having to buy another lid, but they are going to drop one by the house free of charge. Nice! I just hope I don’t have to go through this every Thursday.

    That’s great news. I thought for sure they were going to charge us for that.
    My question, is the frumpy-looking, mangled lid recyclable?

    We miss recycling at least once a month since our trash schedule is about as crazy as yours. I’ve put up signs, stickies, etc. and we still forget what day is what.
