"Stop the Sinks... HEFTY" Comercial ticks me off.


DON'T THROW THAT CRAP IN THE TRASH!!!


JEEZ!! Do people NOT have garbage disposals or a toilet!? My trash is so clean you can eat off of it if one was so inclined.. Just mainly coffee grounds and paper stuff.. I wash the meat Styrofoam things off before I throw them out..

Sorry for the rant, but people complain about their trash stench, and it's an easy FREE fix.. Just the way I was raised..

No garbage disposal - not in the past 2 houses for 12 years
When you have a septic system you do not want a disposal
The toilet is for body waste, not house waste
Everything that goes into the toilet has to be cleaned & purified
So you are creating a bigger problem at a central location

So you wash everything....and waste precious drinking water
Way to go

^ You don't drink the city water down here.. You should see what it does to the dishes.. It's not like I fill the sink with 20 gallons of water to rinse off a piece of Styrofoam.

I can't think of anything to do with crab guts except put them in the trash. Everything else goes to the chickens (except onions and garlic - that goes right to the compost heap).

I don't rinse anything. I compost what I can.

I also don't leave my trash in the house long enough to start stinking.

Get a smaller household trash can if you have to and empty it more frequently. The exercise will be good for you.
