The compost bucket is full, needs to be emptied outside.
The trash and recycling was all taken over to the transfer station yesterday, but the tall kitchen garbage can turned into "recycling bin" is already 1/2 full, one day later. Just what is in there?
-gallon milk jug
-48 oz canola oil bottle + cap
-3 cans beans + metal lids
-1 can chunky soup + lid
-1 paper board and metal canister baking cocoa + plastic lid
-1 can milk
-1 can pineapple juice + metal lid
-20 oz paperboard canister from raisins + plastic lid
-4 lb box baking soda
-10 oz plastic shower gel bottle w/ cap
-plastic packaging from DD's make up
-tissue box, "pull strip opening" to another (new replacement) tissue box
-colored sections of newspaper (bk/white parts saved for fire starting)
-paperboard from lb of stick margarine
-3 pieces junk mail
-trash receipt, grocery receipt, 2 scrap paper, 2 paper labels to aluminum pie pans
-tie on wire to bok choy
-plastic cap to shave gel
-2 plastic "sifter" lids to spice jars (I measure these spices, so sifter cap was useless to me)
This is already prefolded, when applicable (boxes for example) yet there still is quite a bit being kept out of the waste stream. This is so second nature to me. It also showcases what we are using, what we are using up.
