After the great time Truck and I had picking up mulch, I could hardly wait to hook up for another outing. This time, I thought we could pack up a few things from my place and go for a drive.
I’ve been collecting debris from my nursery project for over a year just waiting for the right truck to come along to sweep it all away. Borrowing my parent’s pickup while they were on vacation finally helped reduce the scrap piling up in my garage. (Can you believe some people actually park cars in their garages?)
Nasty old panelling? Gone!
Cheap replacement moulding? Outta here!
Bags of cellulose insulation? See ya!
Minneapolis provides residents with vouchers for free disposal of household trash and debris. Each household gets up to six vouchers per year to use for trash, debris and appliances, plus another two vouchers for tires worth eight tires each. Not only is the service free (provided you have a means of transporting your trash) but the dump site is just a couple miles from my house, so it’s super convenient, too.
Truck didn’t seem to mind another cheap date, though the weigh-in scale to check into the dump was an unfortunate and unplanned humiliation. A few minutes later I was tossing the debris onto the scrap pile.
As with the mulch, I could easily have taken another load of trash to the dump if time had allowed and if I had requested a second voucher. But I guess that’s how I know Truck is a good date: I’m always left wanting a bit more.
