I got up this morning and started the day off filling trash cans with small demolition debris. I hauled it to the curb for the trash dudes to take away. I also removed all the fiberglass insulation on the exterior walls and put them in trash bags and set them next to the curb too. All the trash was gone by 9:00am. It was cool to see things go away.
Speaking of making things go away, I hauled a trailer load of aluminum siding and tracks to the local recycle yard. The sign out in front says "AL $.47". So I assumed I was going to get $.47 per pound of aluminum. Well I had 327 pounds of aluminum and they gave me $71.94 !!! WTF! The receipt said I got only $.22 per pound for "irony aluminum sheet". I think I just got ripped off! OK well I suppose I learned a lesson from that recycle yard. I'll never go there again!
Later in the afternoon I was able to pull out all the copper wire from the travel trailer. Now I have a trash can full of copper wire to recycle. I will NOT be going to the same recycle yard this next go round.
I was also going to tear a few walls down before dinner. It was fun to smash things and bust walls. I will have pull the travel trailer forward tomorrow so I don't accidentally damage my parent's boat while busting the trailer apart. I think I will use their tractor to help push the walls over. That should be fun :)
