Trash to Cash

sistersunnieJuly 12, 2007

My daughter's boyfriend bought a piece of property near us. Saturday they were cleaning it off and there was a ton of old farm equipment left there. They started hauling truck loads to the dump and the transfer station was going to charge them to leave it (because of the size, amount and it was metal). I suggested that a salvage place might actually pay them for it (well duh-but young people dont always think or know...) Anyway after gleaning the stash for anything cool and rusty (for my art of course) they were thrilled to be paid well for their trash!

Not exactly creative but defitenitely trash to cash!
