I am going to have to figure this one out.  I don't get to compost since we are in an apartment, recycling, I still need to pick up bins.  So for our trash, it's about 2-3 bags for a week.  Not much.  Since we use alot of reusable things.  =)

Trash goes to the curb about once a month, usually half full. We produce next to no garbage. Everything is either composted or recycled.

Recyling goes to the curb every two weeks. We could really cut back on prepackaged items to reduce the recyling needs.

Our compost gets the most action. I have a really small compost basket that needs emptied a few times a day.

That's great, Des!! I hope one day my compost will be more used than anything else. We are working on getting away from pre packaged items as well, but we move slow :/

About the same as you Courtney. 1-1 1/2 bags of recycling. Maybe a 1/4 of compost 1/2 landfill trash.
