Trash Pile-Up

Along with burning portapotties, there’s another stinky & troublesome condition in urban life, the trash pile-up.

I live in an apartment building. My neighbor notices that when she throws trash down on the weekend, it piles up in the dumpster. She has to go down to the garage and shuffle around the bags to make sure none of it falls out and breaks on the floor.

The situation is that the weekend trash guys don’t empty the dumpsters. They take an empty recycling container, put a few bags in it, and wheel that out of the garage.

I have video of this occurring, but I’m worried that if I post the footage, garbage guys will know which building, and we’ll *never* get our trash picked up. Our recourse? Pretty much none. It’s a 1-trash-company-town.

Time to air some dirty laundry- do you have any gripes with the trash guys?

    Not really… and honestly, that occasional "we’ll pick up anything you put on the curb no matter how big it is" day is pretty fuckin’ awesome.

    These guys are paid so much to do weekend pick-ups, and then they don’t really do them, is my gripe.
