We all know it. Especially at this time of year, we feel it keenly. We produce too much trash.
I've tried to adjust my behavior a little. Canvas bags at the store -- when I remember. Composting.
I live in a town that recycles pretty vigorously. Most weeks, my big green town-issued single can does not fill all the way up. Not even close. That feels like a victory. But around my house, there's all this stuff I need to get rid of, and I'm just responsible enough not to throw it in the general waste stream and just careless enough not to bring it to town hall on the one day designated fro dropping it off. Computer parts. Other defunct and less impressive electronics. What do you do with a dead phone? Phone books. (We seem to get about five kinds of phone books these days, even though nobody really uses them.) CDs. CD cases. Where does all this stuff go? That's what we're talking about today.
