First Day of Spring Green
Around here, Tuesday is garbage day. This is my big, green trash container that I wheel down to the curb so the automated truck can pick it up and dump it out. Technically, it isn't mine. It belongs to the City of Brookings. They just let me borrow it as long as I pay my utilities. The orange sticker on the lid cautions citizens to store this receptacle up near the house. Because leaving it down at the curb is unsightly and makes the neighborhood unattractive. There is a fine involved, so plan your civil disobedience accordingly. If not for the fine, I would leave it down there. Garbage is inherently smelly stuff and the further from the house the better. Don't get me started on the cat poop.
