Post by sobrohusfat »

Big gestapo sting operation at the dump today

Dont forget your tarp

...and they're checking vehicle & trailer condition

Just sayin'
The adventure continues...

If they're checking for idiots who can't be bothered to secure a load properly or use equipment that isn't road worthy, then thats hardly a "Gestapo sting operation".

"Gestapo" is quickly becoming a synonym for "rules I don't like".

I'm a bit miffed they're charging for yard waste now :-X

We have to pay them to take it, then they compost it and sell it back to us. I've stopped buying their compost - would rather buy from Art Knapps or somesuch.
I haven't failed until I quit.

I thought that was hilarious last time we went. We get more yard waste than fits in the bin at my home. So I pile it into my trailer, haul it with my gas, unload it myself into a pile, and then I have to pay for them to let it turn into compost?!

Might just burn it next time, that's free!

Well, I dont mind reckless speeders getting pulled-over either - but I still appreciate a warning flash of high beams telling me a shakedown trap is just around the corner.

Consider this a friendly warning flash to get yer **** together before heading out there - that's all.

This is interesting, on one hand you have people :cuss: and complaining about the landfill.... on the other hand you have people :cuss: and complaining about people dumping out in bush.

:sunshine: and :popcorn:

Not if you get ticketed for illegal burning in the city.
I might look normal but believe me, I talk to animals and wait for them to reply.

Sorry but where do you think they get it from?
