Trash Day

So I was thinking as I was getting ready for bed tonight, tomorrow is trash day. And it dawned on me, that this is a blog entry for sure.

The reason being, today was trash day. Tomorrow is also trash day and then Friday we have trash day again. I know people who dread trash day. Getting it all out on time, breaking down the boxes, blah, blah, blah. Try having it 3 times in a week.

Today was the blue trash can. In the blue trash can, we have paper goods. Tomorrow is yellow and Brown trash cans. Yellow is for plastics and metals. Brown is for biodegradable, which is frits, vegetables, egg shells, plants, leaves and so forth. On Friday, we will take out our grey trash can. It contains anything else not previously listed.

The one exception is glass. We have to keep glass seperate from all trashes. There are glass drop places all over Germany. And once again, you have to seperate. There is a green glass, clear glass and all other glass containers.

Not only do we have to seperate these items, we also have to remember to take the darn things to the street. Blue goes once a month. And the rest are every two weeks. Thank heavens we have a calendar and neighbors. We would be lost without either of them.
