The City of Newton delivered us shiny new barrels for trash recycling. Blue for trash and green for recyclables. The barrels are huge; bigger than our old enormous barrels.
The new barrels allow for automated trash pickup. No more shakers riding on the back of trash trucks. It also limits the trash each week to the size of the barrel. (It’s plenty big enough for us.)
Now I just need to figure out what to do with our old barrels.
