While tootling along on my bike ride yesterday, I passed this place:
The Sandy Hill Creative Disposal Project is on Old Laurel Bowie Road (still marked 197 on the sign near Hilltop Lane). The best part is the sign on the fence that reads, "No Dumping." The gate was closed and locked, so I couldn't go in and find out what the deal was. A little googling only provided me with concerns about the groundwater on-site. I found nothing about the history of the landfill or why it is "creative."
So I am left picturing big, hulking garbage men sitting at picnic tables adding a little cheer to the trash with glitter and glue sticks. I imagine they'll find plenty of milk cartons and popsicle sticks.
