Clean Up Day


Once a year, the town of Jay has "Clean Up Day." As a resident you are able to bring most unwanted items that have been taking up space at your home and dump it for free.

We gathered up a few empty paint cans and I brought them to the Town Highway Garage on Valley Road. When I arrived at 8:30 am, there was already a good size dump pile.


After handing over the paint buckets, I couldn't help but notice some pretty nice items. I restrained myself from taking home the Adult Baby Blue Tricycle, but asked about an old Radio Flyer wagon sitting off to the side. One of the workers had dumped it off that morning and admitted to having reservations about doing so because two generations in his family rode in the wagon, but felt it was time to part ways. He and his son helped me load it into the back seat of my car and I could tell that he was happy that someone rescued it from the dump pile.

I'll just have to have my own little "Clean Up Day" and spruce up my new Radio Flyer.

That is an awesome "scaff" from the dump. Keep us posted if you think of something wonderful to do with it...

You know that our Radio Flyer is an essential piece of Crew gear at Ultras.

(P.S. Sorry about mixing up McNaughton with Massanutten, I'm clearly not too bright sometimes ;-)

Love it! Mine, from childhood, is still at my mom's house in NY. Benjamin has a mammouth plastic one; so not the same, but it definitely holds more kids, and more loot. And has a cooler. :)
