Good (Encouraging) Stuff (Part 2)

We have two galvanized bins in the garage: one to hold the garbage bag before it goes to the curb pickup, and another to keep bird seed in.

I wonder how we’ll get rid of those? Bash them up and stick them at the curb in a contractor bag? :thinking:

List them on freecycle and put them at the curb?

The tin cans are really the only way to keep rodents out of birdseed - that’s a keeper.

You mean to say NYC has never had wheelie bins like the rest of the civilized world? (The Guardian article seems to think that they are unknown outside the UK)

Meh.Toronto is so advanced that our green bins will defeat a raccoon 92% of the time.

We keep our old plastic garbage can for yard waste, which saves on paper bags. The galvanized anti-rat bin sounds like a good idea.

In our neighbourhood anything metal left at the curb gets picked up, sometimes in minutes, by scavengers who sell it to scrap metal dealers.

Previously extinct species gradually returning.

Now let’s put out the red carpet, I mean big plantings of native forest, for them.

Galvanized trash cans with decent tight-fitting lids are good proof against rodents et al. for sure.

Over the years, I’ve kept pet food, bird seed, and garden soil amendments like bone meal, blood meal, and some of the Espoma products (fantastic, all of them, but loaded with bone meal, blood meal and sometimes desiccated meat/poultry parts like feathers) all of which the rats, mice, raccoons and possums find delicious. I have never see a more determined wild critter than the ones trying to chew their way into a plastic bucket of bone meal.
