Doing good, and keeping up appearances

Recycling has become much more mainstream in the last 10 years. We of course have much to improve on (like reducing the amount of stuff in the first place), but it is great to see how much stays out of the landfill. Instead of small plastic bins, we are now rolling 90 gallon cans to the curb each week.

And an added bonus of the large closed bins, there isn't the walk of shame with a display of wine bottles after a large party like the 40th birthday bash on Sunday.

Heh - after some sort of get-together at 311, I hauled the glass recyclables to the curb and the college kids across the street stared in wonder and then broke into applause for the sheer volume of bottles.
