Garbage pick up– Today was garbage day. Every city/state/country has a different system of waste disposal. In Bogota, we have blue barrels that reside in a small room in the basement of our apartment complex. When we have trash, we leave it in the barrels. Once a week (I assume) the barrels are dragged to the curb for pick up by the blue-suited LIME (Limpieza Metropolitana or the garbage company) men who dump the trash into the big trucks to be hauled away. It’s fairly simple for us and seems effective for the city!
