The Most Aggressive Squirrels in Ottawa Call this Home
This is our green bin.
Sometimes we find it on its side in the morning.
See those little bits on top? Here they are closer up.
I think they are old bits of macerated celery.
We switched to these metal latching trash cans in the fall when the squirrels ate through our Rubbermaid bins. There were holes twice the size of the one in the Green Bin.
We eat fresh fruits and vegetables. That means a lot of organic waste. If we used the Green Bin to its full potential, or as it’s been suggested to us, it would be full every 5 days. During the winter, the city empties the Green Bin every two weeks.
The whole organic waste system in this city is not working for me. The Green Bin in our house is on notice. And has been suspended without pay until we figure out how to better proceed from here.
Can’t we go back to the days of the Garburator?
