Nothing to see here
Did not know they had burn piles open. That is a good thing if one has debris to get rid of.

Over here in Calvert, we can drop off our yard debris from 'the storm' at the landfill for free until Aug23. Usually it is $72/ton, which ends up being about $10/load on my trailer. The nice thing about paying by weight over here is I don't have to totally fill my trailer to get my $10 worth like I did in St. Mary's. Is St. Mary's doing burning instead of landfill drop-off??

And then we haul it to the big huge Waste Management facility in Gloucester County in those MBI trucks. I will admit Sweetwater over here is much easier to deal with than St. Andrews in SMC.

We cannot haul large loads or old boats to St. Marys. All that stuff has to go to Calvert. My brother has a permit sticker on his dump truck for that.
