Do you have recycling in your suburb? I have green rubbish once a month, household rubbish weekly and cardboard, glass recycling once a fortnight or every two weeks. With a compost bin as well, my household rubbish often only goes out once a month.
Yes Miss W, we have a recycling program here in my area of Ohio. Have had it for a long while now. Every week the city collects the rubbish, then in the recycling container we can put aluminum cans, tin cans, newspaper and magazines, all plastics and also cardboard.
