Street Service

Our trash pick up day is Saturday.  The container is supposed to out at the street by 7:00 a.m.  For many years, the truck came by between 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. 

About 6 six weeks ago, that changed.  The time, that is.   I took the container to the street at 6:50 a.m., and saw that the truck had already passed our house and had turned the corner. 

Sure enough, our container was still on the street that night, full.

On Monday I called the refuse company and they picked up our trash on Wednesday. 

Now we put out the trash container by 6:30 a.m.  The truck usually comes by at 6:45 a.m. 

We’re on a long rural road, about 6 miles long.  I just wonder how many people had to call a time or two before they figured out that having to have the container out by 7:00 a.m. really meant by 6:30 a.m.  And, did anyone at the refuse company notice the increase in calls from addresses on our street?  Probably not.
