    LOL Well hey good for you

    Did you get started right there on the spot?

    Did you take any pictures of it (before and after) I'd love to see it.

    Also, keep us posted on how long it actually took you.

    Oh and do you have to worry about dump fees?

      no we set it up for this saturday , ill take pics for ya ... as far as dump fees i still charge for the haul away / dump charge but as long as its not massive amount i just put them out on garbage days , i have several yard waste big cans the guys can pick up with the garbage truck with the arm Claw ....i throw the garbage guy some cash every week and he will take what i put out there ....LOL i know that not proper business practices but i make 80 % profit on my dump charges that i can just cycle back in my company to buy new stuff
