Caravan of collectors trolls JoCo streets before heavy-trash pickup days

Large-item pickup only happens once a year or once every other year for most neighborhoods, typically on Saturday. On the magical Friday night, all kinds of items — toys, fencing, office furniture, even a few appliances that work — are available for the taking. It’s a kind of curbside Christmas Eve for scrap metal seekers, second-hand curio dealers and even a few dilettantes just looking for replacement lawn furniture.
