We use a plastic ice cream pail under the sink for "true trash," which is anything that's not compostable or recyclable. I want to see how many weeks it takes to fill it (and yes, I will squish it down to get more in). Here's the starting point Sunday July 18.
And here's from this past Sunday.
Here's hoping I don't break any large ceramic dishes!
I created this blog for the Twin Cities area of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, because people always ask me, "Now where can I recycle (insert item here) again?" I'm passionate about reducing, reusing and recycling, and I drive my friends and family nutty with my constant exhortations. I'm also very gung-ho to expand curbside composting.
Until Feb. 2010 I was a newspaper copy editor. Now my passion and my vocation have merged, and I'm working for Hennepin County's Dept. of Environmental Services on waste reduction and recycling!
