Today I managed to get rid of the last leaves that I had raked up off our back lawn last week. Good thing too as the snow and ice came the very next day. There were twelve bags full ready to go to the recycling transfer station.

I’m the first to admit that I do not like throwing things in the garbage. But today felt good, because we were bring away all things that can be recycled. Now I am not here to judge the merits of recycling, just stating that whereever possible we try to recycle what we can.

We did not just get rid of the leaves, there was also some cardboard, e-waste (electronics), styrofoam, and some metal. All in all a very useful trip to say the least. I am really glad that our city has these transfer stations for use to bring these items.
