And what happens when you have only three of the five bins? Where, oh where have the green and yellow bins gone? Phone a friend? Rely on Rita to sort it out? What to do...

Ah, but the point is, Jane, that they have gone so far that most people have already just given up. The effect is that they are starting to get a problem with people illegally dumping on the side of the road. "Frying pan into the fire". Last week when coming home I counted the ratio of bags to houses on a stretch of road, and only about 10% of the homes were 'participating'. So that begs the question: Where does THEIR garbage go?

I have just laughed out loud. Great post. I thought I was on top of recycling - you know: this is for the compost bin, this is for the paper bin, this is plastic, etc. But my, I was a tad confused in Soriano. The minute I saw all those bins in my cute little home, I was so impressed. Wow, these Italians are leading the way in recycling. So I read the advice written by you or Paola. Then I re-read it. I thought "Yep, I'm on top of this". Then I made a coffee with the little cofffee pod and got confused. "Do I take the coffee grounds out of the pod to dispose of them separately?". Hmm. 10/10 to the people of Soriano for their intentions. 5/10 to Jane for understanding how to follow these intentions.

What a weird new system. In Urbino, the garbage collectors collect the garbage everyday. It's not required for one to recycle, however, if one chooses to do so plastics, glass, and cans must be separated. When I found this out, I gave up as we didn't have any space for all the different types of garbage. :-/ .-= Catherine´s last blog ..Surprise news! =-.

It's May 1st. The bins are on the patio. It's chilly outside and I need to go out and figure out which one is which,set them up somewhere in the house, print labels to attach on top of the cans. This morning I had a couple of cigarettes which I lit with matches. As I am making coffee I am thinking " which bin?" so for now I have a stash of trash on the counter that I need to sort out. Exactly what I want to do at 6 am. Bill, give me a call. I will give you a copy of the labels. By the way I think all of Soriano is Zone A ( although 3 different zones are listed). I saw Ivan yesterday and he works at City hall, maybe he knows something we don't know. Marisa, the farmer across the street is panicking about the whole thing. Will she be fined if she doesn't recycle the normal leftovers because she feeds them to the pigs? Does she need to prove it? How??? I am just looking forward to the stories and drama. One more question...can you imagine 10,000 people going to City hall to pick up new garbage bags because they ran out. I WILL make a video of it!

Is it clear to you now? Because I am in a daze. Seriously, if you are confused, give Paola a ring :)

Thanks sooooo much for clarifying all this. I was planning on staying up late to continue translating the instructions. I totally missed the paper towels NOT actually being paper. Our landlord has been particularly concerned that we understand all the nuances of the new system and has brought us calendars and collection bags. Now I'm just wondering what to do with todays garbage that's not sorted!!!Mahhhh!! oh, and I missed the whole 10pm part. And I also have to make sure that the rest of the family doesn't screw up. but it's OK cos' hey, we're exactly where we want to be!! .-= Bill´s last blog ..Marta's Lungolago =-.
