You are standing at the '''trash bins''' at the front gate of Noisebridge. If it is Thursday trash night, they'll be picked up in the morning. If it is Friday afternoon, they can be brought back inside.
+
Now that we live in a post-COVID-19 world, it is all the more important to keep Noisebridge clean so that we aren't a vector for the virus. Some things can still be done weekly or twice weekly, such as trash (see Weekly Chores). Other things, particularly cleaning, should be done at least daily.

'''Cleanliness is safeliness.''' Now that we live in a post-COVID-19 world, it is all the more important to keep Noisebridge clean so that we aren't a vector for the virus. Some things can still be done weekly or twice weekly, such as trash (see Weekly Chores). Other things, particularly cleaning, should be done at least daily.
 
*'''WEEKLY EVENTS:''' '''TRASH NIGHT THURSDAYS!''' Please take the bins out Thursday nights by midnight as the trash truck comes between 1:30 to 2:30am so we can be sure they're out in time.
 
* '''MONTHLY EVENTS:''' Fire extinguisher check & medkit replenishment.

If they're still in good condition (unit mounted to wall under white/red arrow sign, pin is in place, dial reads full/green, etc.). If everything is in order, check the month off on the safety card attached to it.

On Thursday, ask others to help! Go around the whole space to check the smaller trash containers. Empty them '''into trash/recycling bags'''. Then add those bags into the large blue and black one under the front stairs. Remember to check:
 
* wood shop dust collector
 
* wood shop sawdust bin
 
* wood scrap bin
 
* both bathrooms
 
* small trash and recycling cans in every room
 
 
Please replace trash bags in the medium sized bins. Trash bags are generally stored in the bathroom and on the white shelves by the hack lounge. Also excellent, bag up loose trash before you put it into the large bins!
 
 
On Thursday any time, move the large bins out to the front porch.
 
 
Thursday night, move the large bins out to the sidewalk!
 
 
Friday morning, bring the large bins back inside.
 
 
It's good to keep the trash contained in bags, because if it isn't, when the collectors empty the large bins into their truck, trash blows out and gets all over the street.
