The Pagan community in the Puget Sound is and always has been especially keen on recycling and beginning in March Tacoma residents may want to follow the recycling regiment that its Pagan population already takes part in. In the afternoon of Feb. 4, 2013 it was announced that starting on March 11 Tacoma residents will have their garbage collected every-other-week, instead of weekly.
This change will effect about 5,700 households in north Tacoma and will include an additional 48,000 households by November of this year. The Solid Waste Management agency states that customers will receive a second waste container or double-size waste container. However, you may be able to save some money and help the environment by sticking with the same size trash container and asking for additional or larger recycling containers that are free of charge. Tacoma expects that the every-other-week service will result in less garbage, more recycling and greater efficiency in waste collection.
Many Pagan homes in Tacoma use the smallest size or next to smallest size trash containers at their homes and recycle the majority of their other items including the new food waste program that started last year. The recycling may seem like a lot to do at first but, by simply placing a small container next to your indoor garbage can and placing your recyclable items in there rather than your trash can, it will become second nature in no time at all. This could be a great opportunity for Tacoma residents and the environment.
