Neighborhood Cargo Bike Run - Recycling

So yesterday I had to run a few errands. I needed packing material for some art I am sending to New York for a friend. Of course I was looking for material to re-use prior to recycling. I called the LBS on the lake and was told "we have 'em but The Guy is coming by today". So I jumped on the bike and when I showed up I nearly had to beg The Guy for a box.

I was still on the hunt for more padding and had spied some possible materials on the way down so I headed back basically the way I had come. As I went up a residential street I found a pile of wood just waiting to be used as material for our custom cat door that I am in the process of building. And now I do not have to buy it, Thanks.

My last stop did indeed provide me with great packing materials. There is gold in them thar dumpsters. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.

I am glad I did this all yesterday as all this would be wet, wet, Seattle wet today.
