trashosaurus Oh no.  The economic meltdown may kill trashosaurus, the one-ton star of Stratford, Connecticut’s Garbage Museum.  In fact, the whole museum may tank.  Currently, the educational institution runs on funding from a regional recycling consortium.  But in these tough financial times, a half dozen local towns have pulled out of the consortium to send their recycling elsewhere and thus funding for the museum has been slashed.

No word on what this means for the Trash Museum in Hartford.  Here’s to hoping trashosaurus finds alternate funding/an adoptive home.  And here’s to the Constitution state.  Kudos, Connecticut for having—for the moment at least—not one but two museums dedicated to trash.

P.S. Trashosaurus weighs one ton to represent the amount of trash created by the average American.  This cracks me up.   Photo via the Connecticut Resources Recovery Authority.
