I used to pride myself on the number of blue bags I could get outside on the curb every two weeks. Just throw everything into it. Easy!
I have watched older neighbours struggle with these blue boxes when before they could adjust the weight of the bags by not filling them as much. As much as I squish and squash, my paper bin is overflowing within a week. I am now ashamed to say that I am throwing my glass out into the regular garbage as they wouldn't take my nicely cleaned, tied-up bag of glass.
And no lids? I actually laughed at the stupidity recently as it poured Wednesday morning filling the boxes to the top with water.
I really detest this "new and improved" system. It will only increase garbage in the landfills as, come on let's admit it, most people will not work to make this work.
Not me of course. I will continue to squish, squash, heave and ho my way to the curb. I think anyways.......
