My wife and I have been living in our current house for about 2 years now. Our municipal waste service provides us with three bins: one for trash, one for recyclabl materials, and one for green (yard) waste. A few months after moving in, we purchased an extra bin for the kitchen to hold recyclables. Also, thanks to the show "Gardening By The Yard" I now have a compost container on my kitchen counter, which holds kitchen scraps (I empty it by burying the contents about once a week, and man, do my plant love me!!). So, anyhoo, I've notices a pattern over the past few weeks when I put out curbside bins out: Our recycle bin is almost always full, and the trash bin is rarely more than 1/4 full (the yard waste bin only gets put out about once a month. I'm quite floored about this, because I've always been a proponent of being good stewards of the earth. My question is, how does that compare to your area? Does your local municipality have a recycling program? Do you compost/recycle/reduce/reuse on yoru own? If so, what do you do?
