Who is responsible for taking out the trash?

Who takes it to the curb on trash day or brings back the empty cans?


My girls usually take the trash out. My 6 year old loves to drag them to the curb. No one likes bringing them back for some reason. LOL

It is so cute how you have trash guys who come to your house!

One girl and one boy have to go through the house and collect the garbage, usually every day or two. Then, take it out to the truck. Once a week (or month, depending on his mood) the farmer takes it all to the dump with a kid or two to help pitch it into the dumpsters. It is actually a little better than when we lived in town because we would fill up the can before they came to get it. This way, we can go whenever we need to. We lent our truck to a friend for 2-3 months. During that time, I went to the dump every time I left the house because I would have the kids load the bags in my van just before I left. I like our regular plan better!

LOL...isn't that cute? I guess when you live in the sticks you don't have trash men who want to come to your house.

Although, before we moved here, we didn't have trash men either. We took ours too. I certainly like this better.

Dh takes out the trash....either dh or I take it to the curb and dh takes the can back to the house.

Growing up we didn't have trash service....so we burned our trash. I remember having to do that and around the 4th of July it was scary! LOL...let's just say that dud fireworks aren't duds in a can of fire!

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.

The boys take it to the curb, and like others, it's always a challenge to see who brings it back !

I can't wait until the kids can help with the trash. I hate trash duty LOL!

I pretty much do it all. If DH is in town he will take the trash to the curb for me on Weds night.
