A solution on clear garbage bags
Since Mulmur Township (in Dufferin County) started garbage collection, they have allowed me to use empty dog food and cat litter bags to put our garbage in. These bags are significantly smaller than the clear garbage bags and they are also durable, protecting the contents from animals. By not securely closing the top of the bag those collecting the garbage can easily see what is inside.
Since more than 50 per cent of Canadians have animal companions, using these bags as effective garbage containers, as opposed to putting them in the trash, reduces garbage considerably. We f cheap michael kors urther reduce garbage by reusing containers, such as the plastic bag our newspaper is delivered in, for smaller garbage containers in our home.
Reus cheap michael kors ing these items allows us to reduce our garbage every week by at least four plastic bags. Those who don have anim cheap michael kors als can use bags that once held bird seed, soil, garden mulch and similar items.
Reusing these bags saves us from putting an additional 208 plastic bags in our garbage every year. With more than 20,000 households in Duffer cheap michael kors in County, not to mention numerous businesses, allowing residents to reuse durable bags for garbage has the potential of diverting more than 4 million plastic bags from Dufferin County waste every year!
