Garbage - a three mile drive and a buck a bag

July 1, 2007

There is no trash service here in Talkeetna. You just throw what you have in the car and drive it to one of two dropoff spots, with one at each end of the spur road. The closest one to me is three miles down the road. Turns out it's $1 per bag to drop off. You just drive in, tell 'em how many bags you have, then drive to the dumpster and throw them out.

That's actually not much worse than what I had to do at my apartment in Louisville. The deal there was pretty much the same, throw the bags in the car, drive around to the other side of the parking lot and throw them in a big dumpster.
