Garbage in the house for 3 weeks? That's not cool.
We compost a lot of our scraps so we only throw out stuff that goes along with living (2 adults and a baby). We generate roughly 1 bag per day that is anywhere from 1/2 to 3/4 full depending what the day brings. The bag I am talking about is a bag that you get when you go food shopping. Forget the draw strings, and put a smaller can in your pull out and you will have a tiny bag that you won't feel bad throwing out each day since you are getting them free, and it is recycling as well.
Not cool in what way? Like I said I live in an area where recycling is mandatory (glass, plastic, paper, metal). So my garbage only consists of stuff that isn't recyclable, like kleenex, styrofoam, plastic wrap, etc. It could be in the house for years and it wouldn't make a difference, so not so sure what's uncool about a mere 3 weeks.
I commend those who compost, but that falls way too far into the tree-hugging hippie stuff I'm too lazy to do. My food waste goes in the disposal, so it never hangs around more than a few minutes. And this way it just gets converted into fertilizer or renewable energy at my wastewater treatment plant: http://www.philadelphiastreets.co...rs101.aspx
I have reusable fabric bags for when I go grocery shopping (one store by me even gives a $0.05 discount for using them). I definitely would feel bad throwing out a plastic grocery bag every single day, yikes. That's like twenty one of those bags for every one I use. Not to mention that even without the reusable fabric bag I'd never amass enough of them to be able to do so on a daily basis. The city only picks up our trash once a week anyway, so it sounds like a lot of unnecessary work for no reason. The few plastic grocery bags I do get on the rare occasion when I buy too much to fit in my fabric ones either go back to the store's recycle bin, or I reuse them for carrying other stuff later on. And those plastic bags aren't always free, some grocery stores around here have started charging a fee to discourage their use. Or then there's other (not grocery) stores by me like IKEA who just stopped offering disposable bags altogether.
As far as getting a smaller bin for my pullout, I've looked and I'm pretty sure I already have the smallest size available with a lid that fits in it. And I like the drawstrings for the convenience. Grocery bags just aren't a viable substitute. I'm looking for deals on actual trash bags, thanks.
Since when is a 13 gallon kitchen bag considered large??? I use this size and manage to empty my trash daily...I'm so confused....
They are normal size for kitchen stand up foot operated type cans
13 gallon is huge to you? I think you are in the minority with your practice of taking out the trash every single day and to me it seems quite odd that you react/freak out with a "HOLY SH@T!" as if not taking it out daily is the uncommon practice.
Yeah, that was my point...the comment about these trash bags being "huge" was silly
This is the standard size for a normal kitchen trash bag.
Let me comment, along with everyone else, and tell you that you must be one of the dumbest humans to ever exist.
i dont think he handles any trash. it must be his wife duty. he didn't even know how big a 13 gallon trash bag is. just by looking at the picture with huge trash can, he thought it's big.
