    Bags of trash..

    Advertisements
    Poll so wait for it

    So I was taking the trash out, 2 bags, and this couple was coming in and the guys says, "Wow, that is a lot of trash for one day"

    I looked at him and said "Family of 4, and this is for a week."

    He just walked off..

    I thought 2 bags for one week was not that bad

    I finally finished off the 2nd bag and had the other on the patio because I did not want to walk clear across the complex in the rain LOL

    So it made me wonder.. How many bags of trash a week does your family go thru?

    I think like 2, it's just me and my husband. They're usually not even full though, we have to take it out every few days cause there's always food in there and I don't want it attracting bugs.

    Oh daipers... can't wait for that! I mean the one outside, though. I'd say it probably holds like 6 bags and its usually not full on trash day.

    Just 1. Unless we have a party or people over. We recycle though, so that's where all the party trash goes.

    We are a family of 6, we usually fill our large trash can every week (sometimes more). It was worse when using disposable diapers.

    2 bags of trash and 2 "bags" of recylables. for recyclables we just put them in a seperate can and then dump the can into the recycle can outside, we dont actually use bags as that defeats the purpose of recycling. We are a family of 6.
