Here at the cottage I’ve been storing up boxes (Cheerios) bottles (Spicy Hot V8 juice), and plastic containers (chicken salad from the deli) until I could put them out for recycle. Finally the day came when I was here on a Monday morning, which is when the town garbage truck come around.
I’ve been taking my garbage home every week, but the carefully rinsed recyclables had to wait before I let go of them. There is something thoughtful, something ‘green’ about recycling on site, where the material is used. That’s my little theory as I do my best to reduce, reuse and recycle as intentionally as I can.
