I have a big general rubbish bin, a paper recycling bin and a bottle recycling bin. They all get collected weekly, but I don’t put them out every week. I only put them out if they’re more than half full or have something smelly in them. Otherwise, why bother? Just wastes my time and the garbage truck driver’s. So typically each of them goes out every fortnight.
I figure if everyone did that, the portion of the rates for garbage collection might drop by, what… maybe a third?
Speaking of council services, you know you’re getting old when you glance at the new mayor in the local council newsletter and you think he looks so young he should still be in school.
