Here it is ... another batch of really terrific reader tips

ONE HOT DATE. Our village does not offer garbage pickup as a municipal service, so residents can contract with whomever they desire. For years we paid about $25 per month for weekly pickup. Then a friend told us about a landfill 12 miles from our town that accepts bagged garbage for $1 per bag or just 50 cents for seniors. Because we recycle so much, we have very little true garbage. We drive to the landfill once every other week with our one bag and make it part of a day out doing errands and going out to lunch. After almost 30 years of marriage, we laughingly refer to this as a "hot date." We kick ourselves when we think of how many years we paid so much for garbage pickup. -- Carole C., New York
