I’m responsible for taking out the trash. Yes, this is a cliché, I admit it. But it is like it is.
The problem with that isn’t the trash itself, but rather that I’m really bad with remembering dates. But luckily, my home town’s disposal company offers an iCal download of the pickup dates on their website. Neat.
However, the resulting file wasn’t quite meeting my needs. Especially:
All pickup dates were all day events
The dates didn’t have an alarm set
We are using a seasonal contract for one specific trashcan, so that it is only picked up between march and november
So, I manually changed the events in the file to match my needs. Moved the all day events to timed events, added alarms to all events and removed unneeded events.
