  • Oh my gosh! We go through a bag to a bag and a half (13 gallon) of trash a day! I don't know WHERE it comes from?! lol

  • Oh yes, especially with all the diapers. It's just neverending trash.

  • About a 13 gallon bag a day. Sometimes more but at least that one bag a day. When we clean out the garage, it will be a lot more.

  • Not as much as we used to be. When we were staying with my MIL, her friend, and her two teenage sons, plus the three of us, with 7 people in the home, we had to take the trash out 2-3 times a day!
    Now, we take it out every other day. :-) Too bad we can't work something out with the trash company for a half bill since we only fill the can half full!

  • We take it out twice a day, there' s 7 of us.

  • We actually fill up our recycling can more than our regular trash! Our recycling can (paper, cardboard, plastic, etc) is always full on pick-up day, but the regular trash can is maybe 1/2 full.

  • No, not really. We average about one 13 gallon kitchen bag a week and one 20 gallon recyling can every two weeks. We are a family of 3 (two adults & 1 teen).

  • We have more recycling except on the weeks we deep clean the rooms every 3rd month.

  • Only when we clean out the garage - and then it seems as if we have a mountain of trash! The rest of the time, we hardly ever fill the trash can.

  • We have about 1 13 gallon trash bag every 2 -3 days our recycling is way more full then our regular trash. Then it all depends o what I clean out to some times I could have 2 a day if I'm cleaning out old files
