Play trash collector
Sanitation agent. Waste disposal expert. Garbage collector. These heroes go by many names, but they have one job. Get the junk where it’s going. In addition to emptying the garbage and swapping out new bags, keep recyclable disposal separate from trash obviously, for easier collection and some sweet pocket change. Better put a bottle bin right by the cooler for easy disposal.
But what if you pushed it further and reduced waste? If you get the household garbage down to a single, non-stinky bag, it’s going to make the garage more pleasant until collection day. Food without animal products? That can be composted into the rich soil that shall birth next year’s fried green tomatoes. You can even bring compostable paper plates and cups for zero waste.
Leftover meat scraps, fat, bones? Freeze 'em. Look, we’re not saying you have to save them and make stock, only that yuppies are paying crazy prices for bone broth these days and you’re a pot of water away from getting it for free.
