Trash Day


Monday is trash day.  Blue is for recycling, green is for trash.

Nice shot of the receding line of cans and trees on this shade-filtered street... Watching the truck move down the street and picking them up one by one with its "hand" is pretty entertaining.

Happy Monday,
Genie

It's comforting to know that the same system goes on all over the world. Nice perspective Jack.

This is far more organized than hereabouts! We have one trash barrel on one day for garbage, but then on another day we have recycle day. On that day we separate items but the curbs are lined with much smaller basket-like containers. I think I like this system better...both services on the same day. But then, who separates the recycling? In addition, we pay private haulers for garbage and trash, but the city (paid by our taxes, of course) collects the recycling items. We even have a service where we can advertise on line for items we want to giveaway free to any takers. I bet this is more than you want to know!!

Well composed, even if it is a bit trashy for a "family" blog!

Not fair, though. You get a great big thingy for recycling...we just get a little box. Actually I had to get a 2nd box and they're both overflowing before pickup day!

Sheesh!

This photo is strangely comforting to me. On this thing, everyone agrees and cooperates.

Look really neat! Nice shot, Jack:)

Great photo, Jack. We have trash/garbage, recycling, and composting bins here, even where I work in the lounge. The different bins certainly make it easy to do your part, doesn't it?

Sharon said...

All lined up very evenly and neatly!

I always do my best not to have dustbins in my pictures.. But maybe I should not! When they are making pretty ranks, they 're becoming interesting!

They look a lot more organized than they do here although we have the same colors. Interesting the similarities in communities around the world! Little blue soldiers they are! Have a great day, Jack!

This looks familiar! :)

I admire communities that recycle. I'm very proud that East Gwillimbury does, in fact all of the towns in my region and even Toronto. But I feel so sad that many places in the U.S. and Canada still do not. What ARE they thinking???

Great shot and post, Jack!

Question- Not these but often they lock trash receptacles. My question? Why?

cieldequimper said...

Aha. I wish we would recycle more and I wish we were told what exactly gets recycled and what it becomes...

RedPat said...

Here they may look tidy before pick-up but are scattered all over the place afterwards!

JM said...

We have different containers for recycling: green for glass, blue for paper, yellow for plastic and cans. There also are public red containers for batteries and another one for used food oil but, honestly, I don't remember the colour now.

VP said...

A bit more chaotic here and people do not always cooperate...

Regina K said...

Glad to see so much blue.

Randy said...

Wow those really are nice recycling bins. You sure can't miss that color.

Dawn said...

Ahhh...how nice to have garbage/recycle pickup.

I have to drive to the dump.
I have to drive to the recycle shop.
You can imagine my capture on this wouldn't be quite as nice as yours;))

My goodness that trash looks neat and tidy, not like the way they sling stuff out here.
