Not casting aspersions...but we can't keep metal farm gates, metal grates, man hole covers or anything metal around here that's not locked down. These methheads will steal the lawn chairs out of yards and the guttering off of churches.
But they wouldn't pick a beer can up off the side of the road to save their lives.
When I come up with a pickup load I carry it on to the scrapyard just to keep someone else from hauling it for me.
But I get enough to pay for a cold beer occasionally.
