Sunday in My City

I'm not sure when Unknown Mami started this meme she wanted this kind of post....
But when you live rurally this is a big part of my city...
We do not have regular sanitation service in my village....
you go to the transfer station aka dump
don't you think transfer station sounds better more classy!
We live about a 1/2 mile away from ours which is so convenient.

Makes my hubby smile

Sometimes I think he looks for things to throw away...
But it makes it nice when you have projects and lots of waste... 
He is especially happy to have his pick up


Load everything in and haul it away in minutes...
The hours are frequent and long...
So if the garbage is smelly and over flowing, off we go..
They have a spot for non recyclables, paper, plastic, old oil,
electronics, clothing....building materials and brush.
♻They recycle everything here♻



Sometimes the whole family has to come...


She loves it especially....NOT! 


My favorite part of the Transfer Station is the mulch that is recycled from the brush...
It's free (well I guess our taxes we pay so not really free)
We fill our flower beds several times a year with it....

So there you have it...
Katelyn says it's sad I've gone from doing Sunday's in my city in Paris to the dump! 
Happy Sunday all!

Interesting. How neat everything is in your part of the world. In Louisiana, the dumps are foul and dangerous. In Honduras, people live and work in the dumps.

A transfer station is much classier. We have transfer stations where I live too, but are fortunate enough to also have curbside pick up.

Does your sanitation department have a marketing group? Transfer station sounds like the result of a past marketing meeting.

I wish they had something like this over here! they only pick up trash twice a month..it's awful!

Enjoy your week :)

I miss recycling centers. We kinda recycle here--our staff hauls away our plastic and glass trash to use in their homes. The rest we have to burn or turn into compost.

I am so much with Sonya!!
Even I could not believe it when I heard that trash is collected only twice a month in Germany. I still haven't got over the same and dread throwing my trash out..:(
Katelyn is funny...:D

There is something about the dump ~ I LOVE going to the dump with Paul and chucking things! Fun!
Love the truck!!!!

Mark said...

That's the nicest TRANSFER STATION I ever saw. And I love your husbands toys.

My family's from a small town too and we do the same thing. But I have to say, living in the "city" where this isn't an option, it sure beats having to pay for dumpsters to come to you.

Happy Sunday! xo jj

I don't live in a small town so it's very interesting for me to see! I'm visiting from Sundays In My City.

I think it's even funnier that you took pictures of it!!! :-)

Unknown Mami said...

I love the idea of you documenting your "transfer" experience. I'm glad you did this post because I'm totally unfamiliar with transferring my own refuse.

Erin said...

That is amazing! my garden would look amazing with all that mulch!

It's a great feeling to rid yourself of rubbish.

This sounds just like the one we had in Muskoka. We didn't have curbside pickup either but our transfer station was always very clean and they recycled everything as well. Isn't the "free" mulch great? Pick up trucks are perfect for rural living - my guy always wanted one but settled for a utility trailer. :)
