"Junk is the ultimate merchandise. The junk merchant does not sell his product to the consumer, he sells the consumer to the product." William S. Burroughs
There's no other way to say it trash is a messy subject. Yours, mine and ours, there is no good nor cheap way to get rid of it.
Our local governments are trying to clean-up our collective mess and the going is sticky. Norwalk decided not to have their spring trash pick-up. Additionally, they think they are being penalized by the rates paid to Huron County, so they'd like to take their trash business to Erie County. However, Huron County says their rates are the same for everyone and now they need to appease the Ohio EPA with a signed solid waste management plan, which Norwalk so far has refused to sign.
My bride and I are mesmerized by the TV show "Hoarders" where each week, their specialists deal with homes packed to overflowing with trash. By the end of the hour, the mountains of trash just seem to disappear.
