    This thread is temporarily closed while I do some cleanup on the religion posts.
    You guys know better, We have a special forum for religious discussions. The kinds of posts that I'm going to delete belong in the forum we've set aside for Religion....https://www.thetruckersreport.com/truckingindustryforum/forums/religion.362/

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Okay, the thread is open again. You guys know he rules. Help the OP if you can but leave the religious arguments out.

    That's how fairy tales start. Trucker stories are the exact same, except they start "Y'all ain't gonna believe this ####, but there I was...!"

    Yep I screwed up. I really do appreciate the advice. Something I forgot to add was that last Wednesday TCEQ called and said there was a complaint... I am out in the country... the only people who come to my yard is the company that empties my dumpsters and myself. I think they are trying to get me out of the way... I just haul residential bagged trash. I had over 100 yds of trash in 10 10 yeard dumpsters
    Whoever said fairy tail.. not sure what part you were talking about.
    However, I haul in this.. you can see the 8 yds dumpsters with the walls welded on them to make them hold around 10 cubic yds.

    I am going to try to find places to put dumpsters. I didn't mistreat the compactor.. I know I should have verified everything but he was a very nice old man who showed me very nice trucks. I assumed and it made an ### out of me.

    Thanks again for the advice.

    I guess it does sound like a story. I wouldn't call it a fairy tale.. Maybe a nightmare.

    Couldn't you find a trailer that would work? I am sure that Duallie would pull it if it's a diesel.

    Man, I'm really sorry you're going through all this.

    Having a competitor as a vendor is probably not a great business strategy. Could you maybe find a trailer to pull behind the dually and start hauling the trash to the landfill/transfer station yourself?

    Maybe find a really ####ty old gooseneck RV for free or almost, demo the RV part, keep the frame and build a box? That way maybe start hauling waste to landfill or the transfer station yourself?
    Dunno, just spitballing

    OP, if you are looking form some cheap dumpsters and maybe a truck, call Larson Waste in Snowflake, AZ and ask for Mike. He still has a ton of equipment left over from his company that Larson bought out. It's sitting in his field doing nothing.
