The dumpster is alive with the…?

March 2, 2015


Is “rot-iron heavy metal” too redundant a term to describe the decorative bit of irony I found sticking out of a dumpster last night?

At least it reminded me why I should wear gloves when I poke around in the garbage — there’s always the risk of catching a nasty staff infection or something. Click the image to enlarge it.

    Hi Stanley… I personally find this piece is quite attractive. If I lived there I would buy it from you! 🙂

    • It was an interesting and quality item — real wrought iron. I left it where I found it but I’d be surprised if it stayed there long. Either another binner grabbed it in hopes of selling it or an area resident grabbed it to keep. Either way I trust that by now it has found a new home.

    Wrot Iron…

    Well played Sir.

    I too suspect that it has found a home, hopefully where it is once again displayed and appreciated! As the old saying goes…”one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”.

  4. It looks like music is coming out of the bin. 🙂

    • Indeed. Some people in the Fairview neighbourhood appear put some serious effort into the way they throw things out: running their recyclables through the dishwasher, posing their garbage for the best effect.
