I'm so annoyed.
We're in the midst of a major rehaul on our uhl street shack. It's an old house and over the past year my husband has been working hard to totally redo the place so that we can eventually refinance for a much needed influx of money. What's been done so far, on limited funds, is incredible, and Stephen has reused many of the materials that were torn down. Century old lathe from the walls was painstakingly refurbished for a gorgeous vaulted ceiling upstairs and pretty much anything that can be recycled WILL be used.
So the other day, Stephen and my brother-in-law went to the dump with a load of old siding and other scrap that cannot be used. While there were there, another truck pulled up with a LOT of plywood and 2x4s that were in really good shape (still with nails in them but those are easily knocked out).
So Stephen, seeing a huge amount of perfectly good materials about to be wasted in a landfill, began to pull some out and put them in his truck - Why waste perfectly good wood? This stuff should be RECYCLED! That kind of waste is a sin, in my opinion. So the landfill bulldozer man began yelling at Stephen that he wasn't allowed to do that. Can you believe that? OK - let's destroy the earth a little bit more and bury this huge load of beautiful, useable wood in the landfill because bulldozer man says it's against the rules. Because you can always get more at Lowe's right?
It boggles my mind.
Just felt the need to vent.
I sense a letter to the editor coming soon.
