My neighbor and I put some metal items on the curb last night in advance of today's trash pick-up.
All the metal stuff was gone before the sun was up.
Competition among the curbside prospectors appears to be escalating.
Update: It's nearly 10:30 am, and another scavenger's pick-up just made a slow pass checking things out. That's four vehicles I've seen since eight o'clock with drivers obviously looking for curbside cast-offs.
If there was economic recovery, would the frequency of curbside trash day scavenging be picking up?
