Previously when I had a car, disposing of rubbish was pretty easy, every so often I’d drive the bags to the bin when I was going out doing something else. It’s not like we produce a huge amount of rubbish here, maybe a bin bag every two weeks, but even this started to stockpile after a few months.
I was a bit slow to realise this and so kept on producing new bin bags, but now i’ve switched to using smaller bags, which I just bin when I go into town in any handy trash container.
The rubbish breakdown is:
|Compost||Uncooked food waste, garden waste green|
|Burn bin||Cooked food waste, paper, mouldy stuff|
|Stoves||Paper, card etc|
|Landfill||Last resort waste, plastic packaging, crap|
|Metal bin||Food cans, drink cans, broken tools, metal waste|
|Glass bin||Glass bottles, jars etc|
It’s interesting being so strict in breaking up things to see now how much pkastic packaging I use nowadfays. Sadly I almost always use a supermarket and so much stuff is prepackaged. Only taking a close look at how much I’m throwing away made me realsie that.
