Did You Know?

Just finished drywalling my garage this weekend and had a bunch or trash as a result that I needed to haul to the County dump. Now while I was there I realized how our county dump is a haunter's best friend. The county has a set-up where they seperate out all the areas...there's an area for metal and metal items, an area for wood and wood products, a covered area for paint and other hazardous materials, ect. Well I thought how do I get my hands on this stuff, so when I was leaving I asked the attendant in the scale house if one could take old wood or paint out and if there was any cost or permissions associated. She asked if I wanted to haul away and I said yes. She hands me a Hold Harmless form whcih I filled out there and she witnessed, then gave me a authorization slip for the Removal of Items and it's good for one year. I just stop at the scale house to let them know I'm in the dump and where I'm going and then let them know when I leave so they know I'm alive and I can take what I want.

Since our dump is a short 15-20 minute drive this is a great option for me. I already saw tons of cans of used paint and talk about weathered wood, pallets and old fence planks galore! Check it out in your area!

My local dump has a similar system where everything is seperated, more or less exactly the same as JA described.
The only difference is that they have a very strict "No Removal" policy. Under no circumstances can you remove anything from that site.
Earlier in the year I spotted around half a dozen oscillating fans up there. No amount of begging, pleading, threatening or bartering would convince the jobsworth little bugger to let me take even one.
When he asked me why I wanted them and I answered "For making Halloween props"
He gave me that look and I knew then that I was on a loser.:(
