Trash: The MeMe

Yeah, so no pictures today. (Of MY kitchen, that is.) That would just be too embarrassing. A few days ago, I got an e-mail from Joanna. Very nosy girl, she is! She wants to know how I handle my trash. Huh.

Well. Like about 98% of all Swedes, I have a regular little open trash can which I line with bags from the grocery store. This is placed in the cabinet underneath my sink. Everything goes in there. The apartment complex which I live in actually has a recycling room, but the only thing we care to recycle is paper, glass and soda bottles/cans. We could, in theory, recycle milk cartons, jars and aluminum cans.. but we don't. Lazy? Yeah, probably. It just doesn't feel very urgent, and frankly, we don't produce all that much trash. Yet. Maybe when we expand our family, we'll get a lot more.

Anyway. I would, however, like a free-standing large trashcan, maybe something from here. Large, sturdy, attractive.. yes, please! Sadly, no room for it in my current kitchen. Maybe in the next.

Looking forward to see what everyone else does for their trash though! Bring it on!

We just throw it in the plasticbag we get from buying our groceries... I think that although good looking, having a bin like that, only adds to stuff you have to clean and keep tidy in the kitchen (then again, my wife tells me I'm a great cook and a lousy houskeeper ;)

Henry, you might have a point there! :) It's probably my inner gadget-geek who's talking.

Ronald - welcome! Wow, all the way from Venezuela! :)
