It snowed two times last week. It is mostly gone now but for one day our world was blanketed in white. It made me take a second glance as I passed by the links golf course. I remember going there as a kid with my dad when it was the town dump. Under those peaceful pristine undulating hills is our old garbage! You can read about this very cool repurpose project here. Now instead of a landfill we have a transfer station where we take our garbage and recyclables and load them into train cars that get whisked away, over the bridge to I’m not sure where. It is free to drop off recyclables but you need a sticker (which costs about a hundred dollars a year) to drop of garage so there is an incentive to recycle.
We used to live in Waltham where they have weekly trash pick up. We didn’t even have to sort the recyclables! They also came around with a big vacuum cleaner for our leaves in the fall. How about you? What happens to your trash? Please share!
