and recycling my aluminum cans - even though it goes against my perfectionist tendencies to have trash sitting around the house for too long. Cardboard boxes come into the house long enough to divest themselves of their contents - and then on to the recycle bin with them, too! See, I've got this bug phobia. Cardboard and paper - out the door! I thoroughly rinse the empty aluminum cans before I toss them into the sealed bin where they patiently wait until the bag fills up - then I tie it up and pass it along to Jonathan for his employee who redeems her collection of cans for extra money. I have even switched to a smaller bag for the recycle bin so I can get the empty cans out of the house sooner. How obsessive is that? I want to do my part - but I also don't want a bug infestation! Is it just me or does everyone who recycles feel this way?
