Day 19 Gratitude Challenge

Today I am thankful for municipal services. Specifically, trash and recycling.  I am extremely thankful that all we have to do is put our trash and recycling bins on the curb in the morning. Then by the afternoon we just have to pull the empty ones back to refill them for the next week.  One thing about Idaho that I love is their recycling program.  In Montana, we could have the recycling picked up, but it had to be sorted in a specific manner and if it was not they would leave it.  Here in Idaho, it is as simple as: throw it in the bin. I rinse all the cans and jars out and break down boxes, but NO SORTING has to be done. This makes it much easier to recycle. ( And yes, we had a lot of recycling this week, because we forgot to get it out on time last week!)

A good thing to be thankful for. We do not have recylcing bins where we currently live but have always had them in the past. It has made me more thankful for the places that do offer that service!

I love having municipal pick up for our recycling. It's sooo much easier than sorting! The only thing I have to keep separate is the newspaper.

we've only had recycling in one local we've lived, but it sure makes sense! Thanks for sharing! hugs!
