Last Wednesday was a snow day. It was also a recycling collection day. The sanitation people showed up early on Thursday and randomly collected some paper and cans.

It's Tuesday night and it snowed. And my dilemma is quite simple. Do I put out 1.5 weeks worth of recycling in hopes that since it snowed today, tomorrow would be a regular garbage pick up day? Do I not take out the recycling because there is snow on the ground and the sanitation department is going to be busy with snow removal tomorrow ( a preferred option @ the moment since I don't really want to get dressed and to the whole garbage-day-prep routine)?
OR do I just remind myself that the whole recycling routine is hubby's chore and let him have his own dilemmas (the best option yet, if I pretend to forget that today is hubby's bday and it would be a nice gesture on my part to take care of the Tuesday evening 'routine')?

And naturally the best case scenario would be if hubby won't notice that the recycling isn't out tonight and tomorrow, before work I'll take care of the whole thing as a happy-birthday-good-will-gesture.

And because I put so much thought into it, something tells me the recycling won't be picked up after all...Time shall tell.

LOL! My guess is that it will not be picked up tomorrow.

On the different subject: I see how well we both kept our promises to go to bed early:)

For me, 11:30 is early.

Should've made a video or a couple pics of yourself doing the recycling and given it to your husband.
"I've got something for you! Happy birthday!"
"This should be good! Are the kids sleeping? Let's see now...wait, why are you wearing...ummm...well that was certainly...ummm...different..."

ah, the benefits of living in a building.

Hubby took care of all the recycling after I went to sleep and it was even picked up before I left the house... So I got him a conventional bday gift-cake.

LOZ, when I lived in a building I disliked recycling even more- the bins were sharing space with the roaches.

the benefit of this building is there is not recycling

Nice Article. Keep it up. But I think this is copy of your topic recycling process.
