$15 per head

I have some trash in the back yard. Mostly lumber from the deck. I will soon have more. Lumber from the fence. It will be a lot of stuff that the trash men will not pick up. In Grand Prairie, they will pick up large household appliances, such as washers and dryers, but not lumber. So I will have to dispose of it myself. Which probably means renting a truck and hauling it off to the city dump. I was hoping to wait until after I redid the whole fence and make one trip, but I think i will probably have enough that 2-3 trips may be required.

I went to the website for the city dump, and was looking at what they charge. By and large, you can dump most stuff free, once a month. Some things, such as tires, have a per item price, $1 to $10 depending on the size of the tire. What I was not expecting, though, was this line:
Livestock - $15 per animal

Presumably that means dead. But I really never thought about people taking their dead cow to the dump for disposal. And it costs quite a bit. I mean, if aliens come down and wipe out half your herd, you're going to have a pay a bundle to dump them at the dump.
