We recently discontinued our garbage service and can’t say that I’ve missed it, yet. We found that we really weren’t putting much trash out anymore each week and decided it was just a waste of $50/month. It kind of happened on ‘accident’, but we’re running with it…..Jon had simply inquired about getting less frequent pickups and seeing if they did a bi/weekly or monthly pickup instead and somehow that translated into we didn’t need their service anymore and the following week, the garbage man just stopped visiting……lol
However, between composting, recycling and paying attention to the things we’re buying, we really got to a point where we weren’t generating very much ‘landfill’ trash each week.
One less bill…One more way to force ourselves to continue being more conscientious about waste. We’ll see how it goes.
Anyone else out there find that they don’t have much need for home garbage service anymore?!
Cheers to less trash!
