Heck, yeah.

November 1, 2008


Guess what came in the mail?

All plastics!! 1 - 7!!

The good people at the Lincoln Journal-Star have a curbside recycling program that now extends to our little town of Seward.  You subscribe ($12 a month) and they’ll give you a tub and tote away your recyclables once a week!  Woo-hoo!!  No sorting (I think), and they’ll take glass and all kinds of plastic!  Totally, totally worth it to me.  I’ll actually get some of my basement floor back since we always wait way too long to go to the local recycling center. I’m actually considering canceling my regular garbage collection, except for all that dumb cat litter we throw in there.  You don’t think they can recycle that, do you?

    Congratulations! I think you might find that you need more than one tub. I still sometimes throw away recylclables because my recycle can is packed full.

    And I think you should press the cat litter into bricks and build something with them. That would be cool.

    I’m pretty sure my friend Jill’s brother-in-law has something to do with that effort. Something important. But you’ll have to ask her.

    (And heck, if it’s curbside, I might even recycle!)

      Yep, Beth’s right. My BIL started the LJS recycling program. We love it and if it wasn’t for diapers, we would probably cancel our trash pick up. They pick up almost EVERYTHING, Lauren. You will definitely need more tubs. We have 2, but could easily use 2-3 more. It’s so awesome. Happy recycling!
