I’m in Georgia and Georgia Power is redoing the lines with massive new metal poles. Do you know how I can get some old wooden ones. I want to build a barn.
Usually when they replace a line of power poles, they leave the old wooden poles on the ground for several days until they can send a truck to pick them up. Years ago you could ask this pick-up crew to just leave any poles that were on your property and they would. With so much recycling going on these days, the power company they may contract all pole removal to private companies that recycle these poles for re-sale, so I do not know how pleased they would be to give them away but it does not hurt to ask.
