Our last "garbage" day, a nice standard family of four was able to put out:

  • 1.5 cu ft compostable waste in our giant green bin
  • 2.5 standard blue bins of divided (paper / glass-steel-plastic) recycling
  • 1 "grocery bag" of other waste

The funny part is that the other waste was sitting very lonely at the bottom of the garbage can which meets the city's definition of "one bag" -- something that is really forgotten in this discussion - the standard is one bag/container and the container can be up to 135L or 30gal as long as it doesn't weigh more than 50 lbs.

If you can't keep your household waste per week beneath 30gal/50lbs, it's not me that has the problem - it's clearly you. Figure out how to change your lifestyle or suck it up and pay the ~$8 to drop off your garbage at the transfer station.
