The second day of no impact week went far better than the first. I have kept the lights off, unplugged the fan, showers are kept cold and short, and I very nearly made it through the day without creating any trash… Unfortunately, I scheduled a job for this Friday which means I had to empty my trailer. I almost always recycle the trees I cut into lumber, firewood, or mulch, but today I had an ash tree sick with the emerald ash bore so it could not be recycled without threatening more trees. I took the entire tree to the dump this morning — the cat scale said the load weighed 12,800 lbs… so much for an entire week’s worth of trash fitting in a half gallon bag.
