Dumpster Emptying in the AM annoying you?: Are you sick and tired of being woken up hours before you need to get up when between 3:30am to 5:30am there are residential and business dump trucks emptying out dumpsters? Please call your local city hall to complain, take down the number on the trucks and call the waste management people that own them, also call the local business that you may live by and lodge a complaint. Being woken up at 4:00AM to annoying, obnoxious, loud, banging clanging and smashing is no laughing matter. American citizens are already on average getting less sleep they/we need. If you need to get up at 6am to 7am and are tired of being woken up 2 to 3 hours before you need to get up by 5 to 15 minutes of Obnoxious Banging then do something about it. I hear so many people complain but what we need to do is call & write to the local business that owns the dumpster(s), call city hall, and call the waste disposals companies that manage the trucks. If you think about it if they wait until 6:30am or even 7:00am they would have plenty of time to dispose of the garbage at a more appropriate time before employees show up and most likely before people leave their houses for work or school. 4:30 AM is NOT appropriate and only adds to what's called "Noise Pollution". There might be a dozen arguments to why they need to empty dumpsters that early but the truth be known is that it's costing people time, money, and health that may have nothing to do with those dumpsters. Lack of sleep affects job performance. It's something that most of us try to brush off and just understand when in fact it's something we don't need to put up with and is extremely disruptive to most people. Early morning hours is when people are getting their best rest, babies are still sleeping, people are trying to complete a full nights sleep. Do something about it and voice your complaint. Ask to seek out a solution today! 3:30am, 4:00am, 5am are not appropriate times for dumpsters to be smashing, clanging, banging, and thrashing, while obnoxiously loud dump trucks are beeping, grinding, and squeaking to fork lift tons of garbage just outside your house or apartment building.

If it's not about pills it has no interest to me.
