Ooo My Back

The Department of Public Works has begun enforcing legislation regarding trash pickup. In 1998 a public law was enacted that required homeowners to place their garbage in trash cans smaller than 35 gallons. I remember this event. The reason was given was the poor garbagemen were throwing out their backs lifting enormous loads of trash into the garbage trucks.

Fine with me. No problemo. I just wish DPW would concentrate on implementing a recycling strategy and closing the Ordot Landfill. That is the real emergency that the department needs to address.
