Whether you're out in the woods for some four-wheeling, biking, shooting or climbing, this is the one time it's better to be a taker than a maker: take out your trash We've got the stories: 610 tires, 150 'fridges, 100 mattresses, 15 trailers, 2 pianos and a jacuzzi - and that's just the things (not counting more than 200 tons of stuff). Shawn and Eve told us secrets, too: who's best at keeping clean (off-roaders) and who's the worst, who's a big help (locals donors and Teller County Waste), plus how this can all be done ONE BAG AT A TIME.
