Trash talk again
Today was once again trash day, I had missed last week due to car shopping with college boy. I threw away 4 tall kitchen garbage bags of trash (30 lbs=$6 charge) but more importantly, I had 6 tall kitchen bags worth of mixed recycling. Add that all non meat/dairy food scraps are composted, we continue to do very well in this budget item, averaging $8/month in weight fees in addition to the $2 + monthly allotment for the annual Transfer Station sticker. Considering that I had 2 extra kids here full time for Christmas break, and there was no spike in trash fees, we are doing well.
