- Tim: donuts and red wine go together
- Me: really?
- Me: that's an odd mix
- Me: common man/fancy pants
- Tim: you're right
- Tim: it's bad red wine though
- Tim: so I'm still mostly common
- Me: haha
- Me: you should put a stack of donuts around the bottle's neck
- Me: and eat it like a wine bottle donut skewer
- Me: and chug the wine between bites
- Tim: I think you've just revolutionized snacktime, my friend
Since moving to Miami a year ago, I have yet to find a facility to drop off the huge amount of recyclables that I keep at my apartment. I REFUSE to throw away plastic and glass containers. I keep all bottles and containers in garbage and tote bags until I visit my parents every few months (who live two hours away). I throw everything into my trunk and drop everything off in their recycling bin at the house.
I live in Miami Beach, in a building with around 20 other apartments. There is no recycling bin. The other residents and I have called the building manager several times bitching about how there needs to be a bin outside. She keeps telling us, “We’re working on it”, but it’s bullshit, because my neighbors have been trying to push this for years.
I tried to google some drop offs, but I keep coming up with stupid drop off centers that are cardboard only, yard debris only, motor oil only, etc. (link) I was excited to get an email that my school was going to put a recycling center in the school but disappointed to find out that by recycling bin they meant two little baskets by the vending machines.
You’d think in this giant fucking city the concept of recycling would be pushed more? I never expected this place to be so wasteful before moving here. It’s depressing.
I’d really appreciate any suggestions anyone has. If you have a recycling bin at your house, I will come by and drop off my shit, I don’t care. I’m just tired of letting everything build up into several trashbags of recyclables around my apartment and have to worry about taking everything home. There’s gotta be an easier way to do this.
