I was out and about on Friday and one of the places I went to was our Municipal Offices to pay for my garage sale table.
As I was talking to the lady we got on about garbage pick up. There was an article in our local paper saying that the Township is going to hand over garbage pick up to County at the beginning of 2013. They will be limiting our garbage to one bag per week, and as we get garbage pick up every other week, that will mean two bags per pick up So far so good as far as I am concerned.
However the other requirement will be that we HAVE to put our garbage in a large clear plastic bag. No more of the regular black garbage bags. From what this lady was saying they need to see what you put in your garbage bags. So as I have a white kitchen garbage bag in my kitchen bin, I will have to tip it out of that and tip the contents in the clear bag, instead of just dumping everything; bag and all in the clear bag without emptying the contents. I don't get it? I don't see why this is a must?
I know we are fortunate that we have garbage pick up as we live in the countryside. I recycle whatever I can, and I make sure I follow all the rules required for our garbage pick up. But this seems just plain silly to me?
Do you have garbage pick up If so how much garbage are you allowed to put out weekly? Do you recycle and does the municipality pick that up?
So is anyone into Pinterest? I'll be honest with you I don't get it. Dd MADE me join and patiently spent at least an hour on the phone walking me through it. Truthfully I still don't understand it and can't really see the point of it, but DD is determined to drag me into the modern age regardless. I have the same problem with Facebook, I don't get that either and if anyone is my friend on Facebook, I am a boring friend as I never post on there. I use Facebook for entering competitions and that's about it.
