There was rather more rumbling than I would have expected, at rather too late an hour, for people to be putting their recycle bins out this morning. When I went down to check, it was halloo hallay the city delivering the new (theoretically) raccoon-proof green bins- the ones I'd seen in other parts of the city and wondered when they'd show up here. Well, they have. And now I wonder why I didn't notice how jagnormous they are- three times the size of the current ones.

No doubt this will be a boon for any size of family. Two doors up regularly asks to deposit their watermelon remains in my compost bin during the summer, because watermelon for six runs to a lot of rinds. But for months I've added my one small bag to my bro's two small bags and still had space left over. Christmas is the only time their bin gets even close to full. (Dinner for ten+ will do that.) And now there's yet another plastic bin taking up space on the porch, leaving little room for the furniture. I may just stick it in the back yard- where, yanno, I have the compost bin that takes most of the kitchen waste from my semi-vegetarian lifestyle.
