As with many longtime Davis residents, I’ve been recycling and reusing for many years.
Nonetheless, it keeps dawning on me that less is more: online journals and magazines, banking and correspondence, I keep whittling away at how I can do better to reduce my trash. Only recently did I realize it is better to carry an empty jar to the Co-op and fill it with freshly ground peanut butter.
You’d be surprised, both my recycling bins are very empty. I drag them to the street once a month and could wait longer than that. Yet I pay the same amount as folks with overflowing trash. I wonder where is the incentive for those folks who do not compost and recycle just about everything to do better?
