On my evening walks, I notice the trash and recycling containers curbside.  My informal analysis is that only about 1/3 of households are utilizing the Wakulla County recycling program.  It really is just a matter of having a collection point somewhere in the house and moving the items to the company-provided bins every few days.  Remember to put the bin curb-side the evening before your trash pick-up.  What a great job for a younger member of the family to be responsible for doing so.  Add motivation by explaining why this is such an important job to complete.  It takes a family so little effort with such a great outcome as we implement the change to lessen our trash at landfills. Click here to read more about it…
