Today: white bins

The company that collects garbage here serves 12 towns. This past year, Concordia won the "best recycling town" award. Every family about 14 months ago got a white bin for plastic/glass/tin cans; a yellow bin for paper, a brown bin for organic waste and a green bin for all the rest. We have a calendar and every day we bring out on the street the right bin: the trucks that collect waste go door-to-door and empty all the bins.

It's easy .. and nice: according to the color of the bin I see on the street, I remember what day is it!!!

We've got yellow and green bins here. I think that I like the look of the white ones better though.
