Yeah, I don't even have a trash can. I put my little bit of non-recyclables in a cereal bowl and take it out to the dumpster once or twice a week. I'm going to start a compost bucket soon. Just have to get the motivation/energy/unlaziness to do it.

Yep! Portland is really great about picking up pretty much anything that you could ever imagine could be recycled. #1-7 plastic, plastic grocery bags, any color glass, pots and pans, empty aerosol cans, aluminum foil, tin or aluminum cans, hard cover books, paperback books, pizza boxes, milk and juice cartons, cereal boxes, pretty much any cardboard or paper you can think of. There's really no excuse not to recycle here. You just put it next to the trash and it gets picked up!

Yeah basically everything is recycled here. It would feel weird to put newspapers or cardboard or plastic containers in the garbage.

We're forced to. Sometimes it's annoying.

can't vote on the pole because I'm on tapatalk but we recycle! our trashcan ist really small for the amount of people living here. we have a bin for paper a bin for glass and one for plastics as well as our regular trash. we get money back for bottles we bring back (25 cents each) so those in back to the supermarket!

You are the whisper in the wind, and the silence in dark.
You are the autumn rain, and the spring flowers.
You are the joy when I laugh, and the sorrow when I cry.
You are the earth beneath my feet, and the air in the sky
But most of all, you are my heart.
Run free, Beautiful Girl.

Not really. I wouldn't mind, really, but we don't have recycling. We don't even have a dump you can go to and bring large items. Trash isn't done by the town, it's done by private companies, and as far as I know ours doesn't do recycling.

We do have the 5c back on soda cans and bottles. We go through a lot of cans, but, even after rinsing them out we kept getting ants so we really don't anymore.

We have 2 65 gallon containers- one for trash, and one for recycling. We don't have to sort the recycling which is really nice.
Same here, and it really is nice. We recycle a lot more now that we have a big rolling can for it. It used to be a pain with those little blue boxes that would overflow, tip and spill as soon as it got windy.

I admit, I'm not a recycling nazi. There are a few things that just go in the trash - I'm not cleaning out enough of the peanut butter jar to get it clean enough for the trash. And I do often clean my car when I'm pumping gas, so any recyclables that are in the car at that point just go in the trash can at the pump.

Our recycling is definitely bigger than our trash at home.
