Portland is known for many things. The newest one is for mandating that everyone compost. Maybe mandate is a strong word but they gave everyone a compost bucket that we’re supposed to use for our food scraps and they are no longer picking up garbage every week (now I’m really glad we use cloth diapers or our garbage can would really be overflowing), so they are trying to mandate it.
Although this seems like a great idea, I’m not such a fan. For one, it stinks. Two, it doesn’t cut down on my garbage. Three, they are now charging more every month and picking up the garbage half as often. That’s a great plan……for them. Oh life in the progressive city.
One of our staff guys made a video about it. It’s so funny and so accurate, even down to the outfits they’re wearing. I hope you enjoy it and it makes you smile. I’m thankful for smart people who can create things like this so I can have a good laugh (and because I’m not so tech savvy I can’t get it to appear here you have to click on the link).
