If you're too lazy to dump your orange peels into the garbage, then shove them down
the drain and flip the switch, and you will contribute to the water shortage.
I actually compost anything organic to my garden.... My veggies and flowers.... Vegetable peelings from dinner prep, coffee grounds, potato peels, egg shells, crab shells, fish bones, anything organic goes to the compost pile.... In my grey garbage can I have like 12 inches of waste every week, if that.....! Maybe 6 lbs at best of waste.... We conservatives are the best at conservation, we do it ourselves, we do not rely on anyone else to do if for us down the road, at the recycling facility. I even pick up metal and nails off the roads when I go on my long hikes....... All goes to the recycle bins. I actually go on long hikes in the fields, I bring a back pack.... Often I fill it with 40 lbs of empty beer cans, foil, fast food cartons, empty beer bottles (most often broken so I spend a lot of time picking up pieces of broken glass with my leather gloves on....)...... Not to mention the used condoms and many, many, many cigarette butts that are so bad for the environment and our local animals, so bad...! I did this a lot when I had the time and was laid off from work for 8 months last year, it was my "job"......... Treat the Earth well....! Not so much now that I have another job......... The sad thing is that most people are slobs, humans suck when it comes to garbage....! They just drop it and don't care........! From raising my kids, the earliest days I taught them that you always take a backpack on any hike and you always bring out "garbage" from others. Sadly, to this day they always bring out more than they take in...... Fisherman and smokers are the worst offenders, just saying........ Oh, and dope smoking disc golf players, empty beer cans and bottles everywhere............. Wake up Folks, leave it cleaner and better than when you got there....! And sadly, every time I go to the disc golf course, Shady Oaks, even Folsom course now, I can't breath due to all the weed smoke........ These guys suck, they go slow, drop their garbage everywhere, and leave me in a cloud of weed smoke for 18 holes........ Not cool, do your thing, I don't care, but don't make me pick up your garbage and breath in all your dope smoke for 2 hours...... Getting out of hand....! Way too much weed in the air.... I don't care for it, just like cigarettes, it messes up my clean air....! Call me a prude but folks, do your stuff and don't mess with my clean air.....! Not cool...! Not at all...! Chris
