Taking out the trash
Upon further investigation, we found out that the guy also used the property as an unofficial landfill. There were over 300 tires, many plastic garbage containers filled with nails and other trash filling up the small crevices in the land. He had also pushed a couple of campers over the edge of the cliff in our only copse of trees. There was a lot of work to do if we wanted the place to be clean. We (ie. my hubby, I was too pregnant to be of much help) spent every weekend that summer and fall filling up the truck and trailer with garbage to haul 25 miles to the dump. We got to be well acquainted with the guy who runs the dump, Little Eddie, his Dad, Big Eddie, runs another transfer station....must be a family thing.
