Thirteen years TV in four different Villages and never had a critter get into my garbage. I don’t expect any problems.

5 1/2 years in Village of Largo and we put trash out the night before pickup, some of our neighbors who are going away put their trash out the day before with Zero problems.

Here in The Villages? I THOUGHT garbage cans were not permitted.

Me too. Must be talking somewhere else?


Up in Michigan, we once pulled a Siamese cat out of our garbage can. Musta been salmon night.

In some areas they are permitted. But neighbors warned me that the reason no one actually uses them at the curbside is because the trash people sometimes will take the whole thing and toss it in the truck, rather than empty it out and put it back on the curb.

I don't know if there's truth to that or not, but it's what I was told. I think all those bags are unsightly. A single trash barrel and bucket for recyclables is less unattractive than a bunch of bags, especially if some folks use clear ones that expose every used, dirty whatever they've tossed in the trash. I imagine going for a morning walk has to be a nightmare on trash day.

Unlike many Villages, we are surrounded by undeveloped areas, which have ample critters. We have passed garbage bags that have been opened by various animals. Regarding garbage cans, that is our safeguard for such an outcome. Legal or not legal, may be living in Lady Lake, I'm not sure but, thankful I don't have to spend the morning cleaning up.

We put out the trash the night before and have never had a critter break open the bag. We have been doing this for over 10 years in The Villages.

Could you please tell us where?

There is no truth to that. You were told wrong.

Let's try something different! Let's look at the facts!

Attached are the guidelines for trash and recycle in TV.
