Taking reuse and recycle to the extreme! Meet Dave, the man who never takes out the trash – TIME via .

David Chameides is not your average American. For one thing, the TV cameraman owns two Emmy awards — how many do you have? But more importantly, while the average American throws out around 1,700 lbs. of trash annually, for the past year Chameides has thrown out absolutely nothing. A deep green by nature — he also runs a website called Sustainable Dave — beginning in December Chameides decides he would keep all the garbage he created, at home and on the road, in his house. “We have the concept of throwing something away, but in reality, we’re just tossing it over our shoulder and forgetting about it,” says Chameides. “It wouldn’t be so funny if it was really just in your backyard.”

    I never take out the trash, but my wife just calls that lazy.

    What about the thousands of pounds of environmental waste that went into making the camera he operates?

    What about the millions of pounds of waste that the Emmy awards generate just so a bunch of clueless liberals can pat themselves on the back?

    He hasn’t taken reuse and recycling anywhere. He basically created a landfill inside his house.
