Waste Not

July 1, 2016


Big doings in Davis. We got brand new–humongous, I might add–bins for our green waste. We can put yard clippings in them as well as all the food scraps that can’t go into our compost (like meat and oily foods). We can put paper items like pizza boxes and tissue into, that typically can’t go into our paper recycling.

They also gave us a counter top container to put scraps into, but we have one already and it’s a lot more attractive than the large plastic box they provided). We’re still trying to figure out manageable systems and routines for all of this, not to mention space for the massive extra bin, but it’s a great step forward for the community.

Note: the one pictured above is on University Ave.
