17 days lapsed bewteen my end of June traah/recycling trip over to the transfer station: 5 bags recycling, 2 bags actual refuse. Pretty happy about this ratio. Cost (besides prorated monthy charge for teh transfer station sticker): $3.80.
As we seriously contemplate the possibility of moving homes, an eye is jept on what we will take with us, what will be donated/Freecycled/sold off. I am at a stage in life where less is more.
