Richfield City is in Spring Clean-up Mode. We have large dumpsters located at the Rotary Park, the Swimming Pool Parking Lot, the northeast corner of the City Park, and at the east end of Center Street. The dumpsters will be there through Monday, May 15th for residents to place large items that can’t go out for your normal weekly trash pick-up. We’re so grateful for White’s Sanitation and the Sevier County Landfill for helping us with this clean-up effort!
I intend to trim some trees and let go of a few treasures that I’m positive my children don’t want (and equally sure that Deseret Industries would discard). Their value has only been established by moving them thither and yawn around my garage for thirty-plus years.
Accumulation is a natural thing. It’s one thing if it were emergency supplies or something that we’ve been encouraged to store and to use when times require it. But we have a collection of STUFF that is not collectable or usable. It falls somewhere in the range of worthless, meaningless, contemptible or trash.
My wife (She Who Shall Not Be Named) exercises a high degree of patience with my bad habit of collecting and holding on to STUFF. She’s confident that if we manage to get it into a dumpster, I won’t be tempted to dive in to retrieve it. She knows that getting me out would require at least two firemen (with equipment). And in this age of cell phone cameras, I’m positive someone would record it and post it on Facebook for all the world to see!
