Is the trash a males job in your house?

I've always wondered about the old rule that it's a males job to take out the trash. I have nearly almost always done it, except for a few times when DH has surprised me and done it. I always liked it if he would take the outside bin to the curb on collection day, and when i was pregnant I insisted on that even though it's on wheels, it has to be tipped backwards to work the wheels which are on the back corners and is heavy, but in between it's been 99% up to me too.

So I'm bored and curious, who does the trash at your place?

ETA: wow I've been featured :) it's great to see how different families do things as simple as the trash :)

Absolutely.

I don't even actually know where you take the trash when you "take it out".....

I take the bag out of the bucket and put it on the deck and he takes it to the curb on garbage day.

I take it out of the trash, ds takes it to the outside trash can then my father picks it up once a week and takes it to the dump.

I do. I like to bleach down the trash cans after they are empty. My oldest DD likes rolling the carts to the curb

Chores are whoever's around. If trash needs out I'll get it if I'm cleaning anyways. Once a week it's my sons.
