This week I continue my task of waste management, though through an entirely different light– your friendly neighborhood garbage inspector now moonlights as an accountant. For this week, Helmut has given me the task of searching through the past 11 years of P&L files and creating a spreadsheet to detail the cost of garbage for each building, each month, for the past 11 years. Unfortunately for yours truly, not only are the files woefully lacking in info, they can be pretty disorganized. However, I shall not be deterred by this (as Helmut informs me) temporary roadblock, but will finish the spreadsheet before the week is out.
In other news, I have finally reached someone at the San Francisco Department of the Environment, and will be able to implement a compost bin at our building on Bush Street!! I will be in touch with our contact there and will keep you– our faithful readers– updated on my progress.
Until next time,
