If the annual recycling brochure were to be compared to the Bible, and if I might be compared to one who studies Scripture, then I am a Bible student who doesn't just know the major themes of the four Gospels but whose knowledge extends to obscure verses from the Book of Lamentations.
So I happen to know that when it comes to the disposal of disposable batteries, the correct procedure...
...is to place the used-up batteries in a clear plastic bag (preferably of the Ziploc variety) and place that bag on top of your recycling containers.
Only one problem: in my alley, druggies are always dumping out my dead batteries and making off with the bag. I presume they want to use the bag as part of dope sales and/or storage.
So--in the spirit of my "not one can for crackheads" recycling practices--I have gotten into the habit of perforating the bag with a fork before placing it in my alley. A perforated bag holds batteries just fine, but it's no good for storing weed.
Yeah, with helpful home tips like these I should probably have my own television show and magazine like Martha Stewart.
