I bet you could get a manpowered chopper/shredder/grinder somewheres. It looks to me like the majority of what you are storing is air.

Dave said...

No doubt. It would be funny to shred everything at the end f the year.

The first thing they do with plastic when they recycle it (assuming it gets recycled, I imagine it mostly gets land-filled even when you put it in the magic blue bin) is chop it up into small pieces. I really think a shredder/chopper/grinder would help. Assuming you aren't going to reuse the bit, that is...

Dave said...

My only concern is that, not knowing which plastic is whihc, they may not take it. I'm meeting with the recyclers in December and will bring it up though.

Aren't you a bit worried about the toxins in paper, not that it will kill the worms but that they will wind up in your vegetables?

Dave said...

The worms actually digest pretty much everything and poop out good stuff. I read a piece a while back about an experiment in India where they had worms break down toxic waste. They were able to digest 70% of it and the compost was releatively clean.

Who knew?
