22 Feb 2020 : Waste data dump #
More waste data is up on my waste page. I averaged 159g per day this week, pretty similar to the week before (more compost balanced by less paper). This is good by my historical standards and still well below my 300g target. I've been trying quite hard, so it's nice it seems to be working, now I just have to keep this up!
15 Feb 2020 : Waste data dump #
The fortnight before last was exceptional, but I didn't do too badly this week either. My latest waste data stats show my daily output to be 149g over the last week. That's still well below my 300g target. The reason for the increase from last week was mainly due to newspapers.
9 Feb 2020 : Waste data dump #
It seems this was a super-successful week for my waste budget. In fact, I skipped my trip to the bins last weekend because they weren't full enough to make it worthwhile. So my average over the last fortnight was 87g a day, well below my 300g target. That brings my average for this year down to 200g per day. Not every week is going to be like this, but it does show that with a bit of planning and individul will it's possible to bring the amount of waste we produce down. In particular, I'm avoiding tins and glass and doing my best not to throw out any out-of-date food. It's strange to think that just by creating myself arbitrary goals it's altered my willingness to eat older food. I'm so easily to manipulate, I can even do it to myself.
