Here in New Hampshire, town governments are the primary player in your local life. Counties have very limited responsibilities. Appropriate trash handling is always a town function. My particular town handles most of our household garbage and recyclable items at the Transfer Station. Other items such as appliances, scrap metal, yard brush, etc., are handled at the old town dump, which is now known as the "Stump Dump." This is sort of an outside holding area where several times a year a salvage company comes in and collects the scrap metal, or the branches are chipped, and the grass clippings composted. My interest is mostly in the scrap metal pile. There I have found a 1892 Coventry England woman's safety bicycle, a Schwinn Super Sport, countless Raleigh Sports, a rare one of a kind Hercules, parts, parts and more parts, frames, saddles, wheels, nearly new tires, and the list goes on. I have retrieved at least a half dozen Brooks saddles in very serviceable condition. Much to my surprise, I found this rather valuable, albeit in horrible, dried out, abused condition, Ideale Model 90 with an aluminum frame and rails in November 2011. It was mounted to a low end, bike, buried under other scrap metal and I could just barely reach in to loosen the mounting nuts and wiggle it free from its certain oblivion. I started a thread on Bike Forums Classic and Vintage about this particular saddle; So Sad: The Fate of an Ideale Saddle. The thread has had over 140 replies, so there is a significant amount of information there, plus the collective wisdom of a wider cycling community. Very early on, Bike Forum member rhm made an offer to replace the leather on my Model 90, since it was decided it was beyond recovery.
