One of the Reasons I Love South Carolina


You can put ANYTHING, well pretty much anything, on the curb and they will take it away! I don’t really know who “they” are but I do know that we don’t have to load up things in our car and take it to the dump. It doesn’t get much better than that.

I have lived in California and Montana and there you have to take things to the dump. When I lived in Montana I used to go to the dump with my mom and nothing is worse than having to put your trash bags in the trunk of the car because you do not have a truck bed in which to throw them. David is from North Carolina and his parents still have to load up stuff in the back of their truck to take it to the dump. So, when the trash can in the house is full, where does it go? Out to the back of the truck where it resides until it is taken to the dump.

Now, recall my pile of bushes and limbs from yesterday?

Big pile in front of the house! Oh no! What to do? However will I get rid of this unsightly bunch of brush????

Never fear, “they” are here!!! Scoop!



And just like that, it is gone! They come in a whirl and are gone in a flash. I had to run out there in my work out clothes to snap these pictures before they got away. It’s like magic!

Now, I realize there is probably some environmental ramifications or monetary implications to my checkbook that I am blissfully ignoring but before you post a comment aimed at bringing me crashing down to reality, please know that I don’t want to know. I am happy in my ignorance. I mean, how can you not appreciate a system where you can put this out on your curb and they will take it away! Yeah, this is just a stock photo of a toilet but I have seen it! I have seen a porcelain god out on someone’s curb before and then it was gone! It was not due to the toilet’s former owners either. I am telling you – a whirl and a flash – magic!
