Make a Recycle Schedule or Continue to Bury the Truth

Article by Kevin J. Timothy

Putrid is the smell. That’s all I can think of every morning as I pass the landfill here in St. Pete, Florida. It frustrates me how casual residents here are about making a simple recycle schedule. I would have to say that the odor is the second most despised thing I experience on weekday mornings. Must I say what tops the list? Its a quiet stretch of road. I guess that’s why Pinellas County cruisers stake out there looking to entrap. Anyhow, the desolation inspires thought.

As I carefully gaze at the mountain of trash at 45 mph, I can’t help but to feel depression. Its a shame how much uneccessary “garbage” ends up in this place. A recycle schedule only requires some thought and a spreadsheet.

As consumers and retail slaves, our wrists are tied by the NIMBY mentality. For the unfamiliar, the acronym is “…not in my back yard!” Its one I became familiar with courtesy of the greatness that is Sim City. Well, the concept is simple; if its undesirable it better stay the hell outta my back yard.

Since no one literally has a landfill by their back patio, of course no one cares. Listen, read…whatever. TRASH HAS TO GO SOMEWHERE! Pardon the bluntness but I have a low tolerance for the lack of common sense. Think about all the foolish things you make time for that can be replaced with a weekly recycle schedule. Would you agree that the US population is on a steady increase?

Would you also agree that its natural for humans to create waste? My friends, at the rate development is going in metropolitan locales we’re runnig out of room. If our birthrate consistently exceeds the death rate space will be limited.

We’re going on our second week without taking our garbage out(to the front of the street)and it feels good! I can’t lie. I mean, why push that behemoth out there if its not even 50% full? How does a family with seven human mouths to feed pull it off? We adhere to an easy recycle schedule.

Seriously, there is routinely nothing to discard in our home! At least so it seems. Now do the math, our family of 7 produce a lot less rubbish than a 3 member one. It boils down to this; if you care, you’ll care. Think about it. If it doesn’t need to be buried, why bury it? More later on how our large family only uses one 13 gallon bag a week…and we didn’t even include our pets in the equation! Stop making excuses. More later!
