Historical Trash

When does trash become history?

This is something you will hear us discussing at all of our volunteer events and we thought it would be good information to share with you here because many people we talk to have never heard of trash being considered a historical artifact.

Objects older than 50 years old are considered historic and can be significant pieces of our collective history. 

The biggest thing we would like you to take away from this is if you are in doubt, please leave the item and report it to us so we can contact the proper agency to come out and take a look at it. Please do not remove the object, often times removing the object destroys essential information. 

Below is some additional information on a flyer we put together on the subject.
