A Day at the Dump

Today was “take more moving trash to the transfer center” day.  I made two trips, to get rid of all the excess paper from the moving boxes.  We still have a few miscellaneous boxes to deal with, but the majority are now unpacked and recycled.

I took some snapshots with my phone of today’s adventures.  Also wanted to report that the phone/internet guy did show up yesterday – and we have internet at the house now.  It’s not blazing fast, but better than using all of our Verizon data gigabytes.

 

The road to the transfer center (it's not really a dump, because everything goes in bins, then goes somewhere else).  It was raining slightly.

Approaching the ominous transfer center.  You have to have a resident's sticker, and it costs $1.50 per bag of trash.  Recycle stuff is free to drop off.

This was the second load - the first was even more crammed.  I took this for Emily, to show that they will take paper even if it's not nicely folded :)

  1. If that is the definition of a dump … then we no longer have a dump either …but as far as I’m concerned it’s still a dump! Except 90% of the stuff you could toss into the old dump … you can’t now!

    In this day n’ age it is rare to see an actual name on a mailbox!

    • Yeah, I think of it as a dump too. Lou put our name on the box in hopes the missing furniture can find us.

  2. That was quite a tour-of-the-area you gave us! Looks like plenty of room in the
    cemetery, which I see comes with natural flowers. The mailbox is a whole other
    story–perhaps the bubbles are reminiscent of the old Lawrence Welk show! I’m
    sure the ‘new view’ will be a lighthouse, or ship (or maybe a likeness of the pups)!
    With the Maine winters, perhaps the metal box should be replaced with the
    larger polyurethane box (like I have).

    You both will be well ready for a rest before you leave for Alaska–hope you can
    work it in!!!
