For anyone new here, I like to weigh my waste every week. My aim is to one day be zero waste. I only way landfill waste, recycling and composting (i use a Bokashi bucket) are not weighed. Monday and Tuesday this week, I moved house – so there’s a lot more than usual in this week’s weigh in! Let me start with some photos:
This was the weekly waste leading up to the move, so meat trays and similar items.
The overflow of day to day trash (with some McDonald’s food soiled carboard that STANK!)
Things are getting heavy! This was mainly packing tape, with a pair of the BF’s old shoes that the leather had started dying a painful death
And the final collection of ‘stuff’ at the old house – there’s a plant in there, and a homemade mozzie trap made form a plastic soft drink bottle, sugar syrup and yeast… what a sticky mess!
So, the grand total is 562 + 276 + 987 + 1277 = 3102g = 3.1KG!
Wowzers! To think I was down to single digits recently… Such is life. There’s no ‘everyday’ waste from the new house (such as food, as Bokashi’s on a holiday to my parents to get buried and returned empty).
More on the new house and new lists tomorrow… And the drama of Sunday and a hospital visit. Oh yes, I like to keep it interesting!
