Toronto’s New Garbage System

August 27th, 2006 by Potato

I like that Toronto is getting into the game and trying to divert more garbage away from landfill through more aggressive recycling and composting programs. However, I’m really not so sure about those little compost bins everyone seems to have in their kitchen now. As someone with mold allergies I just find that to be a bad idea, especially if you, say, go to the cottage for 2 weeks with it half-full of crud and have your oldest son come back from London and try to throw something out in it…

I swear the fungus tried to reach for me when I opened the lid!

So, I did the only responsible thing I could do: I closed it tight, threw the rest of my organic waste in the regular garbage, and left it for my parents to deal with when they get back next week.

    Ya. They can get pretty nasty. I just cleaned mine yesterday.

    I also don’t understand how you can plastic bag stuff and still put it in the compost thingy. Wierd.
