First, our neighbor asked how it is we have so little trash to put out each week. (We put out about 1 kitchen sized bag a week. We have 2 adults and 2 small children). Second, my husband spent about 10 minutes de-constructing our holiday wreath so he could put the greenery in the yard waste bin and the wire frame in the trash. It occurred to me that we may be in the minority with the amount of trash we generate.
So, I'm curious - how many bags of trash do you put out each week (1 bag = 1 kitchen sized bag)
I know many factors play into this, including recycling opportunities in your area, but the landfill impact remains the same. (And...if you have recycling options but don't use them, 2010 could be a good time to start!)
