Well, in some politically-correct regions of the country, they'd be
forced to pay someone more than that to haul away the 'hazardous waste'
that big iron like that represents.

We just got a new trash hauler, and I am a bit paranoid and wondering if
they'll be as willing to haul away whatever ends up at the end of my
rural highway driveway as the previous one was.
