The article and the fact that it's garbage night here made me curious.
How many bags of garbage do you have a week?

We usually have 2 31 gallon bags.

You should move to our neighbourhood, we have at least 4.
Our city doesn't have much of a recycling program, that's part of the issue.

I'm always embarassed when I actually do remember to set out the bins. There's always enough trash to fill three but that's because I only remember to do every two or three weeks . Warning: don't get within a 100 yards of my trash bins!

We recycle a lot. Our trash can is no more full than the other families in our neighborhood(mostly families of 4).

We have a lot too. We have 2-3 bins at least once a week and our recycling gets picked up every other week. We could have 2-3 of those too, but they only allow us one bin. Usually, it's overflowing and then I have a can next to it, and sometimes a bag too.

No recycling here, so 2 huge bins and a regular size garbage can.

Umm we have a dumpster lol, but we do recycle and compost so it takes awhile to fill up, its a great deal, it's $60 to dump it and we call when it needs to be dumped probably every 8-10 weeks
