A low cost month

This rental came with 2 (if not 3?) of the huge trash recepticals, such as the one pictured above. I dragged one over to the carport side of the garage, and that is where I store my full trash bags. Due to weather, I have missed my trash runs this past month, and finally was able to go this weekend. I loaded 4 kitchen garbage bags into the trunk. Cost: $6 for disposal @ 20 cents/lb. Additionally, the rear of my car was filled to the brim with 7 kitchen trash bags full of recycling, a box, a large repurposed bag full of paper. I remain happy that our trash output is so low, as is the associated cost for disposal. Under $10/month? I can certainly handle that.
