I went to UTEP and have moved to a small town, Pittsburg, Texas. I often marvel at small-town living and look at the surrounding "big cities" and say thank goodness I don't have to deal with that. Read more
Drill for oil

"Drill for oil

I am sure that we all agree that we are tired of paying $4 or more for gas.

Congress is supposed to be working on the problem, but it appears that the finger-pointing on Capitol

Hill will never end. Every time I see a news show, or hear a sound bite, it is always, "You did this; it's your

fault," or, "We could have done this, but you wouldn't do that."

I am sick of the bickering. We need to fix the problem and not argue over who caused it. I don't care.

Let's all send a message, loud and clear, to Congress

Our garbage drivers in Northeast routinely come before 5am, and their supervisor believes their lies when they say they cam at 7am or 6am. This, even when the entire block has called in to say the drivers came way to early. I think the supervisors need to monitor the drivers better, and maybe pay a little closer attention. They might find out the taxpayers are correct.
Trash

El Paso, TX

#4 Jun 22, 2008
The early pick up is not the main concern for me. I am concerned about the fact that the driver on my route in the northeast deliberately knocks over trash cans and drops the cans hard causing them to be damaged.
This last week I was outside when he came by. A short distance down the road I guess he felt that the people had placed their cans wrong or he just didn't like the fact that the cars parked on the dtreet meant he had to slow down. He picked up a trash can held it 2 or 3 feet off the ground and drove forward knocking over 2 recycle cans. He then dumped the trash and dropped the can directlt in the middle of the persons driveway.
He regularly drops cand from 3 or 4 feet above the ground and leaves them in gthe middle of the street.
He has stated to me that if I don't place my cans further out into the street he won't pick them up. I live on a culdesac and place my cans as required, seperated by at least 3 feet and withing 1 foot of the curb. He is angered because it requires him to back up.
The entire trash collection service in this city is a joke.
