A Little Clean Up


Recently, we made a trip to the dump.  We had a bit of wood, flooring, and some other items that needed removal from the yard!  It was beginning to look trashy out there.

The City of Phoenix allows one free trip to the dump each month.  It’s actually a transfer station, not a dump.

The transfer station is large and actually very nice.  Can you say that about a dump?  They have great signage placed for where to deliver your items.  Regular trash trucks come to the same facility and have their own area.  phxrefuse

Our truck was full.  We were sent to bay 11.  Each bay handles two customers.  The place was very busy.


It felt good to get rid of those old cabinets from the laundry room and garage.  Some old plastic lawn furniture went, too.


Tractors are on the move throughout the place keeping all the trash picked up and out of the way for the next customer.


It was unlike any dump I had ever been to, and I was impressed.  Now that we cleaned up our place a little, it’s time to get back to work!

Thanks for stopping by.  You can also chat with me on Facebook or follow me on Pinterest.

  1. Doesn’t it feel good to unload things at the dump? Y’all have plenty, I’m sure, with your reno going on. Were those cabinet doors in your dump pile? I’m a little sad about the possibility of future repainted cabinet doors used as canvases taken to the dump. I have to keep it in perspective and remind myself…it’s all trash, right? Blessings!

    • It feels GREAT! I am still going through things to donate to the thrift store. I started purging the house over a year ago, but have stepped it up a bit lately! lol. It’s a little cramped in here.

  2. Yes, they were cabinet doors from the workshop. Ancient, flat front, varnished, particle board. The ones from the laundry room were flat front also. Not even worth being a canvas in my mind. But good eye, Kim! Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
