I drove to the top of the landfill in Northville and snapped a pic. You can see the Detroit skyline way in the backround.

Gosh, that place is treacherous these days! I think my truck almost snapped in half Friday when I was up there, no to mention huge gravel trains hauling a$$ behind me about to run me over, then nearly getting stuck in a pit of mud.

Besides the smell, that is one of the coolest places in Northville, you can see for MILES!

Just FYI, they take clean concrete, bricks, rocks, etc for free there in case any of you have some stuff to get rid of.

Cohen, you still trying to use the Salem Twp card at the compost area? lol.

That was the first time I ever drove up it. I normally just go to the compost dump, but since you have to pay there first, the lady said we could check it out. I actually had another customer offer to let me use their dumping card today, but I would totally get in trouble if I pulled that again. Pretty much finished the last of my clean ups today. Now just have to finish mulching and a bunch of aerations. Hopefully full on cutting next week.
