Council rubbish chuck-out days are the best recycling plan

One house about two blocks from here put a huge pile of stuff out, slightly larger than my car and including many bikes and a barbecue. Within 6 hours it was down to just the barbecue.

Another house half a block away had a couch piled high with gear, including a small microwave. It took two days this time, but they’re down to just the microwave (but now without the glass plate), no couch and no other gear.

It’s kind of like a huge flea-market but without the cash registers.
