What are little crows made of?
I was talking on the phone to the disembodied voice who works for the garbage pickup service.
“hi, look; I have this dead crow — actually, two — out on the street and it’s really gross…”
“… can I yard waste them?”
The voice took on a faintly pitying tone.
“Ma’am, crows aren’t yard waste. They aren’t recyclable, you know.”
I got annoyed.
“Look, it’s in your pamphlet, under Yard Waste. It says “meat and fish scraps (including bones)”, so why can’t I yard waste them?”
She put me on hold, went and checked, and came back and told me to double bag them and throw them in with the regular garbage. I wanted to argue and tell her that one was showing bones already, but I gave in and hung up.
But WHY can’t I yard waste my crows?
