Today at the dump, Greg, Chandra, Sarah and myself had the luxury of gleaning together. That’s six more eyes, and six more brave hands scouring the trash in search of treasures. We found an unbelievable amount of stuff.
I pulled out about 100 lbs today. I didn’t need any of it, my heart just broke at the thought of not rescuing it. So, I loaded as much as I could into my car (I still had stuff from yesterdays findings in there), and drove off to donate it.
Alyssa from Scrap was really excited by what we had saved that day at the dump. 3 rolls of Butcher paper, a bag of plastic flowers, several skeins of yarn, 4 photo albums, 23 paper bags, a bag of old calendars, 14 panels of foam core, 5 gallons of tempura paint, and much more. It all weighed about 113lbs. Donating it to scrap would have saved these people upwards of 100 bucks. What would you do if you have 100 extra bucks in your pocket?
