Blog Guelph: Garbageasauras

Originally uploaded by ericjgiberson.
Every June for the past 25 years, Guelphites join together to take part in the Speed River Cleanup.

Hundreds of people drag thousands of pounds of crap from the river which is then hauled to the dump.

In 1999, some clever welder type created this monster from part of the haul. Despite concerns over public liability and other such worries, Garbagesaurus now lives on the bank of the river in Royal City Park.

Thanks to Flickr guy ericgiberson for his shot. Click on the pic for more.
