    $40!? We hauled out a mixed load of household trash, cardboard, lumber scraps, and metal. We had a 4x8 utility trailer full and the box of our Avalanche full. The cost to get rid of all that was $10. We can enter for free and I've done that sometimes when I've needed something I knew I could get there.

    I've also taken a full pick up load (one layer of cans) of old paint and hazardous waste and they accept that at no charge. Only on certain days though, and there's a l-o-n-g line then.

    Recycling metal and appliances is free. They take tires for free, but only four at a time. They also take stuff like car batteries and old motor oil free. They charge $1 each for old computers, TVs, VCRs, etc. Our county does sell the scrap metals and I've always wondered why they let people salvage, except whatever people take home, they don't have to pay to transport somewhere and it's just less for them to deal with.

    They also have huge recycle bins for glass, paper, cans, etc., all free. There's a recycle place right in town for that, too, so we don't usually take that stuff to the transfer station unless we have space.

    We have to haul our own trash, but the rates are very reasonable. It's about a fifteen mile drive for us, so two gallons of gas plus fees. We got through town so usually combine trips with errands to save some money. Still cheap compared to what the trash hauler gets to pick up every week, and then our trash isn't sitting down by the road for the bears and ravens to scatter all over the place.

    Here's the 'after'. I really love it! I have to find just the right plant to put in the kittycat pot, but that's all that's left to do on the project. Simple!

    They have catnip growing in the spill-over light from our AeroGardens, so they're covered. And there's usually a pot of cat grass growing on the window sill, but that's using the AG lights at the moment, too.
