Recycling

I was a " townie" but used to visit an aunt and uncle who lived out in the country with no inside plumbing. We had to get a bucket of water from a pump or cistern, bring it inside, and either use it to drink, cook with, or wash with it. Put a couple of dippers of water into the small pan and have a wash. After that, we either put the used water into a slop bucket which was, eventually, put out on the garden or threw the water directly out on the flower bed according to my aunt's wishes. The slop bucket contained used water, kitchen trimmings and food leftovers. Nothing went to waste.
