Speaking of Chimneys...

...Gallegos Sanitation called and wants its recycling bin back!

If you look closely at the picture, a resourceful homeowner has covered one of his (hopefully!) unused chimneys with a recycling bin from Gallegos. Kudos for ingenuity, and every chimney does indeed need a rain cap, but a recycling bin is not the appropriate solution. Make sure your chimney 1) has a rain cap/spark arrestor, 2) is in good working order for the winter, and 3) is not using a Gallegos recycling bin!
