Every week (Tuesday night to be specific), I do the same thing – pull the garbage and recycling bin out by the curb. I typically only do the cardboard and plastics every week, while saving the glass to put out every two – three weeks.

And every time I finally haul the glass out, I always think the same thing: “Oh, that’s a cool bottle! Maybe I should keep that.” I mean don’t get me wrong, it happens with the cardboard and plastic too.
