Trash Tips for Trashy People

Post by Lightspeed » Sun Mar 10, 2019 3:42 pm

Do not fill your bags completely. If you do, you'll end up with large, unwieldy sacks of inconvenience.

Instead, fill them 3/4 or even 1/2 way, they'll be so much more manageable.

Also: I used strong Husky Contractor bags and didn't regret them one bit. I brought 10, only need 3, and gifted the rest.

I love that you said, "unwieldy sacks of inconvenience". Plus the contractor bags are well worth the expense. They don't rip. I take my trash all the way home. I tried to drop it off and there was some bate and switch going on. Oh no lady we can't take your big black bag for $5. Only the little white bags are $5. FU! I already have it in the car. I'll take it home with me.

The post-burn garbage collection scams are blowing my mind. You gotta be a real asshole..

We dropped off 3 bags ("unwieldy sacks of inconvenience", actually) of extra trash we volunteered to haul out before we realized we were already over-loaded. The spot had showers, too, which we donated $ for, as well as a donation for the trash. Unfortunately the trash area was kind of a mess. At the time I remember thinking I wouldn't drop off there next time just to help reduce impact, so this year I'll be hauling all garbage home. Definitely going to stop there again and pay for those hot showers, though! Mmmm...
