Punch Out

punchout_1611The words PUNCH OUT caught my eye when I was walking in the neighborhood. While I would like to punch out the litterer, I picked up the recyclable cardboard circle and brought it home to recycle.

I would like manufacturers to be more proactive about recycling. Tell the consumer to PUNCH OUT AND RECYCLE.

Cardboard: Don’t Trash It

Cardboard boxes are one of the most common items I see in neighbors’ trash weekly. And it is recyclable.

As a child, I remember building forts and houses with cardboard. My nephew and his father once built a huge fort with discarded cardboard. While I take my cardboard to the recycling center, I have used it on occasion for dog and cat beds. Although it is not permanent, the cats love to curl up in their beds in a cardboard box.

A quick Google search for cardboard reveals furniture, boats, robots and other items constructed from cardboard.

Coming or Going?

We have neighbors who are relocating to Denver. I quickly snapped this shot of their trash (yes, it was out for the garbage pick up) this morning as I left for work. This is not stuff which was loaded on the truck.

I was shocked last night when I saw all the empty boxes lined up for the trash collector. Also included: a chair and a garden hose.

I hope that the men who pick up the trash were able to salvage the chair, which looked fine; maybe just needed some reupholstering. The garbage can is on the far right mostly hidden by boxes.

Instead of moving out, this couple looks as if they just moved in. Tonight the truck was still in the same place, but the “trash” was gone.

I wish I had called 1-800-FREEGAN.

The Top and Bottom of Trash

The Top of TrashThe bottom of litter

As I was out walking, I found the top of a shoebox tossed in the grass. About 25 feet away, I found the bottom of the shoebox. How lazy! It’s recycleable cardboard.

Cardboard: Trash Or Recyclable Item

This could have been recycled.I’ve complained many times in this blog about garbage pick up day in my subdivision because of the number of items I see piled by my neighbors’ trash cans that could have been recycled. This morning after my run, I walked by five houses on my street. Four of which had cardboard items sitting by the trash cans. One person had a lawn mower perched on top of some cardboard. You can probably guess whose house didn’t have any cardboard by the trash can!

Tonight when I was walking the dog, I wasn’t surprised to see this Pringles box on the side of the street of the most expensive homes in my neighborhood.
