Here in the country, a big day is forthcoming. It is the one time of year when the smaller cities come by and pick up any discarded items that are at the roadside that the garbage trucks will not normally pick up. It is motivation for people to do their spring cleaning. If one makes the rounds the day before, it validates the old adage, "One man's trash is another man's treasure."

I wish they did that here. I'd like to pare down about half of the stuff I have around here. It piles up quickly.

Yep, we got that around here also. Although, before going through what is thrown out, we have an ordinance where it is required one talk to the home owner before going through what they throw out.

In Texas, anything between the sidewalk and the curb is fair game

When I lived in the Village we all knew if we went to Park Avenue after 10pm on Wednesday evenings we could browse through like new furniture and boxed up clothes from designer shops, many with the tags still on them that the rich people did not want anymore, if no one had access to a truck we would all go in together to rent a truck to haul back the goodies, It really helped when you had a large apartment to furnish and still had to make rent and pay for college, By the time the trash trucks came all that was left was the real garbage and the rest was happily residing with new owners,
