The Garbage Drive-By


Wouldn't it be cool if going green meant doing less work? Well, here is one case where that is true. I call it the garbage drive-by...letting the trash truck pass your house by only putting your trash and recycling at the curb when they are completely full. This isn't the kind of thing that saves you money, but it will help you think about what is going in the trash and what can be recycled or composted. And will save a you a few trips to the curb. If you're like me, you're not afraid of a little extra work to live a greener lifestyle, but it's nice to know that some options cost nothing and actually save time. To hear about one way we compost, watch Put Joe Back to Work.
