Apologies for the tardiness of this ‘Wednesday’ post. (It is already late on Thursday).
The garbage truck shows up on Wednesdays in my neighborhood, and on alternate Wednesdays the recycle truck and the yard waste truck comes by. This is the yard waste truck. I was shocked that I was able to fill my big yard waste bin with leaves, weeds (from the front yard!) and pine needles – given that the leaves are only just starting to fall. So when DOES fall start here in western Washington, I wondered? The chart I found shows the peak periods .. and ours is later than in northern states by the Great Lakes, and the Rocky Mountain area.
