You probably know my curiosity by now! So, here's another How do you do it where you live? Nick and I were talking about how much our trash collection (which includes recycling) has changed in different areas and states. It's different for my brother in Canada too. Currently, we have these big garbage cans that are labelled for trash, recycle, and yard waste. We bring it out of the house and put it in the bins. Then the bins go to the curb and a big truck comes and empties them with a mechanical arm. The trash is picked up weekly, recycle biweekly, and yard waste weekly for about 6 months in the summer, and a little spring and fall. The yard waste is taken to a compost area, and you can get cheap compost from the city in the spring/summer. Our city also has a leaf collector and wood chipper that it collects big branches and fall leaves to add to the compost pile. How about you? What does trash collection look like for you? Is it weekly? biweekly? a person? The big trucks?
