I thought so.....More years ago than I care to admit, I was with the company that put those street lights in that area. We replaced the granite poles with the round globes on top with those in your picture.

That convenience market used to be a bar with very good food when we worked down there. A gentleman and his younger wife owned and ran it. He had a new Cadillac and she had one a few years older in matching forest green. For the life of me, I can't remember their name...

So what do you do with a skid every weekend? Looks like a wheel barrow job 2 me. Did you load up that pile of crap or something? As far as being a drug front......what do you expect living in a run down neighborhood in stl?

I didn't expect they still owned it as I'm talking about many years ago. Like I told Matt, that's a noble project and not for the faint of heart. From the pictures, it looks like there's a lot of work besides yours going on there...

Dose anyone have a good way to loading this kind of pile in a dumpster. I would love to use a grapple bucket but it is not in the budget do you think that a set of pallet forks and regular bucket will get the job done? thanks

It'll be a pain in the ass. If I couldnt afford a grapple, I might attempt it with a 4n1.
