Made your 2015 resolutions yet? I have. In the new year, I’m going to figure out the recycling rules. And I’m going to reduce my garbage footprint in half.
This thinking is catching on. It’s hard on haulers, many of whom are mom-and-pop operators trying to pay off the debt on the fancy new rig they had to have to compete with the chain operators, but change is sometimes inevitable. And in this case, the good outweighs the bad.
A gardening friend who composts everything except his odd socks keeps chiding me about the two bags of garbage I produce weekly. He’s down to none.
How does he accomplish this feat?
Looking at my own two bags provides the obvious answer. He doesn’t accumulate unnecessary stuff.
