Trash Compactor

This Trash Compactor made me look. We had a similar garbage can as a kid growing up in Switzerland. They became a thing once you had to pay for each bag of garbage you put outside. Also, garbage pickup was only once a week! Imagine that, New Yorkers!

  1. In my city outside of Boston, MA we have to use special bags to throw away garbage that cost about $20/box ~$2/bag. Most people complain, but I think it’s a good way to get people thinking about their personal waste!

  2. NY has garbage pickup more than once a week?? Where we live in the UK it’s every two weeks!

  3. what?! more than once a week in NY? why?!
