Blog Prompt: What would people think if they went through your garbage?
That we use a lot of toilet paper and drink a lot of tea.
We have an interesting deal with trash around here.Â We have the blue box for recyclables, I have a little trash can for doggie poop that I pick up, we have a trash can for landscaping items and we have our regular trash can in the house for the rest.
Our regular trash is picked up around here on Mondays and Thursdays.Â So the doggie poop bag, regular trash bags and the blue box go out then.Â Two different trucks come buy for different trash. Absolutely no grass or yard waste is allowed on these days and believe me, if they think there is anything like that in your bags, they will rip it open and leave it on your drive way to clean up.
Wednesdays is ONLY landscaping trash day and these guys are very picky about how you collect your landscape cuttings.Â No grass clippings are allowed.Â If we ever have any grass to throw away, it has to go to a special dump down the road.Â Florida law.Â If you have any tree limbs or palm limbs that have not been cut up and bagged, you have have to tie them up in a bundle or the trash guys will yell at you.Â They haven’t yelled at us, but I have seen them do it neighbors.Â It ain’t a pretty site.
Don’t get me wrong.Â These guys are doing their job and I don’t blame them for getting upset.Â They are nice people and always wave and say hi when I pass them when I am walking.Â Maybe its because I am walking with a big dog.Â
I’m just a country girl loving my geeky life with my wonderful husband, always taking pictures, getting my hands dirty in the garden, being crafty, exploring with travels and enjoying all this on a budget. But above all, living my faith as a child of God!
