Interesting result so far. In terms of bulk or volume, recyclables constitute most of my garbage. The compostables, though more dense, are pretty small. If I continue this, I'll be using the big green garbage can for the dry paper, cardboard, plastic, glass and metal and may buy a smaller one for the wet stuff.
Hey, this is not entirely new. For my birthday in 2009, B treated me to a tour of the San Francisco water treatment plant and there I learned how evil it was to flush dental floss down the toilet. Ever since, right in the waste basket. And it belongs in the black bin!
UPDATE JAN 22ND. My ex, Thom, and his partner came over this afternoon with a gift: an official San Francisco composter. A small plastic oblong container with a handle that allows one to dump one's composting refuse right into it. His partner said, "Wow. You're becoming a San Franciscan."
