Every Wednesday morning Rick gets up early, opens the garage door and rolls out the trash and recycling cans. Both are always positioned right by the door and ready to go because Rick spends every Tuesday night prepping for garbage pick-up day.
Rick has been a master garbage disposer since I met him a dozen years ago. He crushes, flattens, squeezes, stuffs, organizes and separates with passion and purpose. At first I thought his garbage-related behavior was compulsive, but then I realized that his method made a lot of sense.
He has taught me to take the extra few seconds to flatten the cardboard paper towel core to make room for more trash or to take my empty plastic shampoo bottle to the recycling bin rather than the waste basket. I’ve improved considerably, but Rick still doesn’t trust me with the night-before preparation for trash pick-up for fear that I will mess it up, I guess.
