Description
When taking out the trash maids will first check to see if there are any compost bins in which to dispose of it. If no compost bins are found, the route to the compost bin is blocked or the compost bin is full the maid will dispose of the trash in the garbage can outside instead.

Requires Seasons

Works with Christianlov's All-In-One NPCs

This should also fix that annoying thing that occasionally happens where the maid will drop the trash on the floor, pick it up and drop it again, over and over.

Normal sims will still dispose of the trash in the garbage can when directed to.

Maids will still dispose of newspapers in the garbage can.

Would it be possible to add sims to this? They sometimes actually clean up after themselves and I've always wondered how in the world to get them to take it to the compost instead.

I'd like that, too, because I have some neat Sims... and I'd like for them to be able to compost the newspapers.

I already have this mod in my computer, and I love it. Now, I'm going to install BV (the third time, hope the last) and I wonder if the mod is BV compatible.

THANKS!

Thank you!! "This should also fix that annoying thing that occasionally happens where the maid will drop the trash on the floor, pick it up and drop it again, over and over." I once had a maid do this for 3 HOURS straight! I eventually had to shoo her and take care of it myself.

Nice mod, very handy, however

1. On a full Install of Sims 2 + all EP/SP (Except for Appartment life) my maid did put the newspaper into the compost bin as well, where as your sims page says they wont

2. On a full install of Sims 2 + All EP/SP (Including Appartment Life) the maid has stopped using the compost bin and gone back to the trashcan

Just a quick fyi in the hopes this great mod will be updated to work with AL
