Don’t worry, I saw the support for my bar-buddy’s request, I’m not going to bore you with a scrap-by-scrap dumpster-filling post. The title says it all.
I will say that there is something special about having a dumpster in your driveway. And, in the interest of transparency, I need to give the editor
some most all the credit on this one.
I had ordered a 6-yd dumpster. That’s the capacity. The form-factor is a 5 1/2′ cube, with no front door, so everything has to go over the 5 ½’ (1.7m) side into the bin. The stuff that is taller, wider, deeper than 5 ½’ – yeah, that stuff has to be cut in half, or in thirds, or in some number of pieces. That was my plan. Cut the big stuff and toss it all over the side. The 5 ½’ side. That’s taller than the editor, which is maybe why she said:
“Are you sure you don’t want a bigger dumpster?“
I made the call and upgraded to a 12-yd roll-off dumpster, with one end that swings open. Wow, did that make a difference. And, given the extra capacity, I was able to throw a few other things out. In fact, that’s pretty much what we did this weekend.
The pictures in the gallery are not dumpster shots. Well, there are a few, but not too many. The others were collected during the other weekend activity – walking Maddie. I hope you enjoy.
