free dump week

Last weekend was one of my most favorite weekends of the year: Spring Clean up. For 1 glorious week we get to get rid of all the rotting awfulness in our house/yard for FREE. Maybe you all don't really know, but it costs an arm and a leg to dispose of trash here. Normally it is 7 cents a pound, which can add up.

Remember that awful boat we cut up and took to the dump last year? Sure you do! That cost over $400 in dump fees. WHEE. Living on an island is super fun. We got rid of a bunch of old, rotten crap in the yard, lots of insulation, drywall, a boat trailer, and temporary flooring. 6 little toyota truck loads left our house and we look much, much less like trash.

There will be more. The event lasts all week and I can find more things to get rid of.

This effort it to encourage all people here to clean up their yard because if it wasn't free, nobody wants to pay to get rid their trash. Even so, there are some amazing properties around here.
