Not allowed

We have very nice warehouse space for an industrial area. Quiet street, except for the cement plant across the way that sounds a siren every time the conveyer belts rev up to pour cement.

Fine dining establishments such as McDonald’s, Wendy’s and the Sonic just up the road. Heck, we even have a lovely view of downtown from the parking lot.

However. HOWEVER. While Betsy and I were holed up because of the snow last week, somebody of obvious poor character dumped a pile of pallets in our front parking lot. What were they thinking? There’s even a STOP sign right next to the pile as if to indicate that dumping garbage on someone else’s property is not allowed. NOT ALLOWED.

So now Betsy and I are going to have to figure out some way to get rid of the darned things. We have actually fibbed to our wholesaler about not being able to dispose of pallets so he won’t leave any behind when he delivers. Now he’s going to see them in the friggin’ front yard.

I think I am going to dump this squarely in Betsy’s lap and convince her this is a volunteer opportunity. Wouldn’t someone want to come over with a claw tooth hammer and pull these babies apart for the dumpster man to pick up? I think she can sell that to somebody. She just moved more than 500 ashtrays that say Helen, Ga., on them. This will be a snap.

About CRC Nashville

Who are we? We are literally two chicks - Catherine Mayhew and Betsy Everett, and a warehouse - the Community Resource Center (CRC). In short, CRC is a non-profit organization that provides household goods, furniture, and appliances to people in desperate need. Think of us as Robin Hoods – without the stealing. Catherine is a former journalist and Betsy is a marketing chick. We are both devoted to acquiring stuff – good stuff, no junk – because that’s what our most fragile citizens deserve. If you have metal desks, televisions that don’t work or underwear you don’t want anymore, don’t give it to us. We’ll sneer at you. If you are companies that have excess primo stuff like furniture in good condition, school supplies, personal hygiene items or pretty much anything else, we’ll be your new best friends.

  1. Folks who like to compost can use them to construct three-sided bins, or even something fancier with a lid. Perhaps look to some of your green associates to take them off your hands?

  2. There are people that will pick them up for free as that is what they do for a living. if you still have them or have that problem let me know and i will get a number for you or call them and direct them to your location.
