Living Beaverton - Your guide to everything Beaverton


I’m white trash…but secretly I’m green inside

Recycling logo courtesy of scol22I'm proud to be the white trash of the room. I sit there in the corner of this house and do my job. Call me what you will, but I know that my job is more important than what my outside portrays. I have two siblings on each side of me and they are white trash also, but I'm the one that is really green on the inside.

You see, every Wednesday I'm taken out with my sibling to the curb, but unlike my siblings who fill the landfill, I'm filled with recycling that can be reused. I am truly green inside. I'm proud to be the white trash (can) that sits quietly, that looks like all the rest, but it is my green insides that make me the proudest in the room.

So, please don't judge me for being white trash, because on the inside, I'm really helping the environment. Tell your owners that they too can be proud of their white trash if they just remember to be green once a week and look for the items that have the recycling symbol on the bottom.

Todd - Great way of increasing the awareness to recycle.  I was just talking about this at lunch!

Todd, so white trash is good? ; ) I'm buying a bigger mobile home. I'm special. Todd says so.

Hi Todd - you had me at white trash - I never know where you are going with your titles.  We finally realized how many water bottles we were throwing away and started recycling them and donating the money to the charity that collects them.

We don't have 'white trash' in our area...our recyclable containers are blue...odd for a 'green' practice, isn't it??? Thanks,   Fran

I don't live in a white trash neighborhood either, we are green and yellow!

You know Todd, you really are out there at times, aren't you?=) LOL! JK!

Thanks for trying to get the message out! It is still amazing how many folks still don't recycle! And it so easy and effortless to do!

Dang you Todd....I am laughing, really laughing at Gary's comment on buying a bigger Mobile Home...:) :)  This was cute, and the Title was catchy.
