Wednesday is trash collection day here, which means people take their trash out to the curb late Tuesday or Wednesday morning. Anything recyclable (bottles, jars, cans, etc.) goes out in blue trash bags.
It’s not unusual for someone to drive by and pick up anything that can be fixed and reclaimed, like old furniture, TVs, appliances or tools.
I took everything out a while ago, including four blue bags of recyclables. A while later I looked out, and the blue bags were gone. I looked up and down the street, and of the trash that’s already been taken out, there are no blue bags. Who the hell would have a use for bottles, jars and cans?
