I strongly support curbside recycling and have our two gteenwate bins ready to roll out for Friday's pickup. However, what surprises me is how little we have in the way of mixed recyclables. I don't expect that we will have enough to put out more than once every THREE MONTHS.
The trick to dealing with odors is to rinse all containers - including takeout boxes - and then package them up in PAPER bags before stepping on them to reduce the bulk.
With respect to foodwaste, freeze it and then put out early in the morning of pickup day.

I'm definitely excited about curbside recycling here -- it's long overdue. It means I don't have to go to the school bins anymore to drop off newspapers and cardboard for recycling. It also means there's somewhere to put green waste.
Recyclables include plastic shampoo bottles (No. 1 or No. 2), glass jars, etc. that aren't part of the HI5 beverage container program.
As far as foodwaste goes, try starting a compost!
We'll see how it goes...
