Composting + Recycling + Whole Foods = No Trash?
Utah is not the "greenest" state, at least not down south. You have to pay for curbside recycling. Thankfully it's not that expensive so I finally broke down and signed up for pickup. It makes it so I actually recycle. It is just too much work to haul it all to the recycle bins by the grocery store so I never did it.
All the kitchen scraps are going in to the compost bin and all the cardboard, plastic, cans, paper, etc. are going into the recycle so that leaves very little to go in the actual garbage can. Since we're not eating much processed food we have very little that is actual trash.
