It’s A @*%#$8!& Miracle!

May 29 will mark 2 years owning this home. Last week marks the very first day the City of Newark actually came and picked-up the recycling.

I still had to call and report the missed pickup. But Holy.Crap.

Yet Another Missed Pick-up

They came!! The recycling was ACTUALLY picked up! I didn’t have to smuggle it away to my parents’ house or call a possibly shady gentleman with a pickup truck {both true stories}.

Empty Recycle Bins!!!

What is a boring, routine, mundane, municipal service is a thrilling highlight of my week. Seriously… first time EVER.

Now lets see if they can keep it going 2 weeks in a row…

  1. Wow! That’s crazy! Is there a reason they don’t pick it up?

    Who’s been drinking alcoholic unicorn blood? I see a Four Loko in there.

    we finally got recycling in our city – we have recycling dumpsters now in the alley next to the trash dumpsters. it’s been great!

  4. Jill says:

    Wow. That was quite possibly the most vague response to Rob’s comment ever. I see no denial that it was YOUR Four Loko. 😉

    Now now lets just savor this moment and not get too ambitious

    This post made me laugh…I moved to Jersey City a couple of years ago, so I know exactly what you’re talking about. Nowadays, our recycling gets picked up but the guys leave and awful mess behind.
