I had never been to a dump before until today. We are throwing away our jacuzzi and Mark cut it in half with a saw. We loaded one half on my kayak wheels and wheeled it down the side of the house. I thought my wheels were going to POP ! We heaved it into the truck with Megan’s help. We them drove to the dump and I got to see what other people were throwing away. I bet we looked kind of funny with half a jacuzzi. Things people were dumping – dirt, wood, tiles, well… just junky stuff. When we go back to dump the other half, I will be sure to take my camera and share the complete experience.
Here is a picture of a dump:
This looked like the dump I went to. Very organized. They have to cover it all up at night with dirt and mulch. The mulch and trash smelled like sour milk… yuck! I had to hold my breath until we got up wind of it all.
The picture above came from this site: http://science.howstuffworks.com/landfill3.htm You can learn all about landfills and how they work. I’ll read it later….
