How many garbage bags do you use in a week?

Seems like around here the garbage fills up on a daily basis and it is the basic 13 gallon bag/can size..and that is with crushing everything before it gets tossed

  • daily - small bags in kitchen (I don't like it to sit around until filled up) and small bags in bath - about once or twice a week

  • Probably about 7ish, lol. The kitchen gets taken out about every day and then you have the bathroom trash too, so it's a lot. We can not miss the trash day or we will be in trouble as our dumpster is always packed.

  • Wow these answers seem like a lot! We might have 2-3 regular kitchen size bags a week including diapers and all. We also have 2 large recycling bins that get filled weekly.
