garbage island style

We visit this spot everyday to drop our trash. The island does not recycle so everything goes into the dumpsters. Glass, plastics, metals, batteries, household cleaners, foodstuffs. Its basically one bag a bag a day, a far cry from our one bag a week in Seattle, where nearly everything was composted or recycled. On our 5-mile drive to school there are four dumpster stops for us to choose from. Each week they are filled to the brim and then emptied in the landfill that borders the only estuary on the island. I swear the landfill hill is visibly getting higher and higher every day I pass it.
