I received a call from Waste Management. They will pick up trash and yard waste/compost tomorrow. They won't pick up my recycling though because August 1st wasn't my normal recycling day. July 25th was my recycling day and they didn't pick it up then. Oh well. At least the smelly trash and compost will be taken away.

Though WM pick up our garbage on Thursday, for which I am grateful; they didn't pick up our recycle or yard waste. Unless they include us in tomorrow's effort, we will have gone three weeks without yard waste or recycle collection. Since yard waste has food scraps in it, it's beginning to stink and we've no more room to put it out.
