1st Floor Trash Management System
This Loomio is specific to the 1st floor.
After we work through the first floor, let's start a different thread for the 2nd and 3rd floor as they are used differently and there will be learnings from this 1st floor discussion.
We've been batting around and trying out different ideas on how to manage our trash on the 1st floor for a few years now. Let's try something new. Let's buy new bins that are color coded and labeled so that people begin to understand the sorting of our garbage.
I'm suggesting a five bin system Alongside compost pick up and moving the larger black Ikea bins into the bathrooms on the first floor

Compost Pick Up https://vokashi.com/ This group is a long standing composting group in NYC. They process the compost. They'll pick up 3 buckets of compost and drop off three buckets of compost/ 1x month on a Friday for $60. It would be a month to month contract, so easy to try out to see how it would work and decide from there.
