Every working day, nine heavy trash haulers from the City of Indianapolis pick up large items at curbside and in alleyways.
This couch, mattress, and computer monitor were plucked by Andy, who said he’d already pulled in ten couches this morning. Most days, he makes two or three trips to the Southside landfill with his 18-cubic-yard load. On the side, Andy organizes a small crew that cleans out foreclosed properties, selling the “better pickings” at weekend flea markets — earning a few hundred dollars — and disposing of the remainder at local landfills.
