“How do you gets these carts back down the hills?” I asked

“Why? Want to see me do it?” James called out to me as his buddy Jarrett covered his mouth and began laughing a huge, “Oh man! Oh mannnn! Watch this!”

“Black Magic,” the name James is truly known for, and Jarrett aree masters of the Canning game. Trekking two empty shopping carts up from the base of Downtown to the heights of Banker’s Hill, they ride. Reaching terrifying speeds, they control their overflowing 800-pound chariots back down the steep hills to the Hancock Recycling Center.
