TRASH CLEANUP BAGS

Postby Grandpa Caver » Jun 7, 2008 6:57 pm

I have come into posession of over 1,000 woven poly 50 lb/gal. "grass" bags. They are very sturdy and excellent for trash removal projects. I'll be bringing some to both Cave Capers and Karst-O-Rama. If anyone can put them to good use or just wants to have some handy for a future project, I'll gladly donate them. Hey Dark_Storm...how bout you? Sounds like ya'll could use a few!

That actually sounds like just what I need since I will probably be dragging out a bag at a time over the next few months.

Your welcome to all ya need. Look for me at Capers in an older RV called a Mallard. It'll have a fenced in yard (for the dogs) and lots of my grandkids running around, should'nd be hard to find!

BTW: I've used these bags on several projects & they work great to contain & move trash. I gave some to a college group once for a sinkhole cleanup. They filled the bags but failed to remove them from the site. Nearly a year later we were on our way back from a nearby cave and noticed the bags just sitting there. After all that "weathering" we were still able to carry them back to our trucks for disposal.

Yes, a sink near the trail leading to Clicks.
