Honestly, what is wrong with you people?!? First, the size of the receptacle is reduced to 35 gallons, then you decided you no longer wanted to shake the garbage out, but it had to be placed in bags, which you then removed from the garbage bin at will, meaning, yes, there was always at least one left at the bottom AFTER you picked up the garbage. This. Is. Ridiculous.
Our taxes have gone up 2% AGAIN this year, yet, our services are not improving. I have to call the Municipal office EVERY MONTH about this. It improves for a week or two, then we are back chasing our damn bins down the street. Come ON!!!
This is YOUR job. Emptying the garbage bins, and being at least aware that the bin you are throwing down the street is someone's property, is YOUR job. And you get paid handsomely for it. AND you get VERY generous health AND pension benefits for it. For life. I do not begrudge you these benefits, as I know this is not an easy job. But, for everyone's sake, do it right.
End of rant. Sigh.
