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 :thumbsup:

^ 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.

There isn't alot of water to waste

The new study, which examined growth rings in trees throughout the Colorado's vast drainage basin from New Mexico to Wyoming, is the first to look at five-year periods such as the 2000-2004 drought.

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).

Which is worse. Smelly trash or wasting water?!

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.
