     I made this change years ago & with a family of 4, we call to have our 35 gal. container picked up every 6 - 8 weeks.

    One of the most impactful changes I recommend for reducing waste is to switch your garbage service from weekly to on-call pickup.

      Congrats! I tried the compost ball first and discovered it wasn't for me, so I got rid of the deathstar and now I have a worm bin in my garage. The worm bin has a much smaller footprint and I like checking on how fat the worms get. Fat worms are happy worms!
