Next week the borough of Sayre is having a Spring Clean Up collection. For a big item you pay $25 and you will be on the list and it will be hauled away. When we bought the house there was a old, rusted and bottomless hot water tank in the basement.
So we went to the borough building a paid the $25 for the service. Yesterday Chuck and I rolled the old tank up the basement stairs and out to the front for its pickup. Good thing he has a Shop Vac to gather us the rust crumbs on the basement stairs.
It was gone within the hour, some person collecting metal stopped and took it. I am out $25, I wish I had some other big item to put out in its place. Note to self, put anything metal outside and someone will take it for free and I will not have to pay anymore.
People put our furniture, and it disappears as well. I is truly amazing to see it go and be recycled.
