New recycle cart/new planters
Nice big and blue, 95 gallon lidded cart on wheels to put the recycle items out for pickup, to replace the two 18 gallon bins we have been using for several years. Our's was unceremoniously chucked into our yard this morning.
We have an even larger green, lidded cart on wheels for regular garbage pickup. Because I recycle everything that can be recycled our garbage cart only goes to the curb about once a month. But the recycle bins are there almost every week, unless we forget to put them out.
Recycle pickup will only be every other week now, but with such a large cart that won't be a problem. Unless of course I forget to put it out, then it might be. One of my neighbors never recycles anything so I could borrow hers if that happens.
This means that on windy days I won't be going out to catch milk jugs and cereal boxes as they fly down the street...on rainy days I can now put out the cardboard and paperboard which they won't pick up if it gets wet.
Also means that since the city doesn't want the bins returned to them I now have two 18 gallon, already drilled with drain holes bins to plant mint in under the large hackberry tree. I never seem to have enough mint and in the small pots I have been using they dry out too often.

I'd imagine you are pretty glad to have the two 18 gallons Toni. They can always be found useful for something :)
We've been promised one of those recycle carts within the next month or so, and I'm SO glad. We live in the middle of our 5 acres, and lugging all that to the road gets old really fast! Awesome that they don't want the old ones back, they should be perfect planters. Maybe even set them down into the ground- and no worries about mint taking over, you are very clever there!
We don't have anyone that picks up out here for anything. We have to go to the dump about 8 to 10 miles from us.
