New city garbage cans
King of wisdom

I came home from work today and had 2 large city garbage cans in front of my house.. And the house nextdoor to me that has vacated for over 5 years had 2 as well.. And 3 houses down on the other side of me that has been vacated for over 7 years had the cans as well..

So who is paying for all this waste and who is making money off of it? And here I thought the city had a budget problem..

This is what happens when you have privet sector companies with political partners ridding on the tax dime...

Get ready for your garbage fees to go up...

This new garbage can "policy" has been foisted upon people out of the blue..thought this was "America"??!! Everyone on our street uses 2,3 garbage cans every pickup. Now only one---& if you need another they are CHARGING $65.00!! What?! Every second can needs to be free-not one cent! We didn't ask for this - garbage collection was working just fine! They want to save COMPANY money by letting drivers go - they don't care what they're doing to the citizens--unbelievable! People already had nice, expensive cans -$35,$45, that are now useless because...Waste Pro SAYS so?? And the city is allowing its tax-paying citizens to be abused like this???!!!$65 and you don't even OWN them! What's going to happen to everyone's garbage overflow? It will be left all over the yards & streets---this new "idea" is going to make this town look like a total garbage DUMP. It is OUTRAGEOUS that this is being done to us like this. Stand up, people---let them know this is NOT ok!
