|Just a few rules to follow here when throwing things away|
Then there is the recycling which should be pretty simple by now. We have been doing this for a long time, it hasn't changed much. We are pretty good little recyclers and hope to stay that way.
Then there is the garbage situation. They have required everyone to use clear plastic bags....so they can spy on your garbage and bust you if a tea bag sneaks into the garbage and they are in the mood to slap one of those orange stamps of shame on your garbage. The garbage category seems to be getting smaller and smaller every year. Pretty soon they will allow one small zip loc bag for your two week pickup, clear of course.
What does everyone do with the stuff they don't allow in the garbage, recycling or compost? Well, here in Nova Scotia they have the great trash extravaganza in July when you get to throw away just about anything. The road is littered with toilets, old sofas, broken down bbq pits, carpeting, appliances, building materials, junk, more junk and more junk! The road looks like a garage sale nightmare gone horribly wrong for about 2 weeks. That is when the scavengers come shopping. You think I am kidding? I am serious!
