We did a trip to the dump this morning. They let us dump for free because mostly what we had to drop off was metal. There were lots of goodies in the piles but you are not supposed to take stuff away. However i spied some cables used in yachts and if i make my floating roof, i can hang it from the trees using this cable. I also retrieved a set of basket draws in a metal frame. Very nice. No doubt they would have sold this somewhere. I wanted to pick up some old carpet as well but Dad didn't want to risk it. I'll phone them up. There was also a lot of mulch. I suppose they sell that to the nurseries. People were bringing in trailer loads full of garden greenery to throw out. Boy i can't wait until i can afford a garden mulcher.
