I hope they take it back and bring a new one. It will get stinky and nasty without any water to hose it down. lol

I still had a hard time seeing the map with the magnifying glass. They certainly could have made a better map. I've seen much better maps of this town and the map I've seen was also small but much clearer than the one that came with the toter.
I'm assuming that the city assumes that everyone gets a newspaper and/or has cable 3 to get all info on the rules and new pick up. I know most in my neighborhood didn't have their trash out today. Got mine out though!

Another thing about attempting to get the info on cable 3. I never got to see any info there because every time I turned to the channel, they had their wonderful programs on. Who really wants to see reruns of the councel meetings all month long anyway?

Hey,News flash,if you are a renter the land owner pays for the water,most of the time so no worries with that,if they make you pay for one of those toters then it would become yours,if they say it's rented then you can refuse to have one and take your trash to the other lieard owned money pit transfer station,either way he has you by the gonads.Damn glad I don't live in the city,thank god for Rumpke.And for those of you who did not vote for mayor,you sure are bitchin now! waaa,haaa,harold would have left it alone,go urbanville,you deserve it and more,and the water will go up again,just wait and see.

I haven't seen it on my bill.

Not sure of the status of the new truck, but an old truck has been picking up my trash for several weeks now. The old truck has two hydraulic lifts added to the back of the truck. There is the driver and another man. Both had to get out of the truck to get to the totes. They pull the totes to the truck and line them up for the lift to get them. Then pull the totes back to your curb. Basically taking twice as much time as previously. Not sure how this is more efficient with time or money. I also see people still piling in so many bags the lid does not close. Lots of people. The workers around me are still picking up these people's trash, even though their lid is not closed. I feel badly for the workers.

There is a house down from me, that has trash bags piled 6 feet high. They have been there since day one. When the trash truck comes down our street its the old truck, so why cant they load the trash piled high one time? I dont want to have to look at this stuff all year long!

Best urban has to offer
Trash cans and carbon "no more" motors.

Should have had carbon motors make the trash cans.

Ok my problem with the whole process is that when they passed out the trash cans they had the new schedule on it but not a start date. Now instead of picking trash up 3 days a week they are picking it up every day. When are they picking up yard waste and recycling. That wasn't clear in the paperwork either and I didn't see it on Ch. 3.
