Are the police going to pick up the trash the garbage men drop all over the streets and sidewalks? They can help out too.

That is total bullS**t, most car thefts are on garbage nights. pedro finds an unlocked car and calls his buddies to steal the stuff.
They had better have to have State Police background checks and F.B.I. fingerprint checks just like I have to to work in Schools and Government jobs.

This could be a good thing as long as Waste Management employees give the info to the good guys.

Will u be watching out for nosy neighbors as well? It gives the Atown PD more free time to waste doing crap, 3-4 police cars for a traffic stop, not to mention the whole Dept. for a disturbance of loud children call. What more can our tax dollars pay for?

Now I know why my newspapers are never collected. I have called and asked how they want them bundled and still they never pick them up. I have been told to bundle them with string, did that, never picked up, put in cardboard boxes, did that, never picked up, use brown paper bags not plastic, did that never picked up. So now the papers go out with normal garbage. I have newspapers that I could sell to someone, but, no one wants them. It's just too bad that we can't burn our own garbage, that way I would be able to get rid of the paper.

This has been going on with Waste Management since they took over the garbage collection in my town. If they don't want to collect this stuff on recycle day, they should just tell the public. That way they can patrol the cities for criminals.....

A total Load of crap!
Nothing like pseudo-cops.
If the garbage men see a crime they should call the office and not the police?
What is Waste Management scoring from this?
How much tax money has been spent on this crock?

Mayor Pawlumpski.You got to love him. What is he thinking? He is quick to tell the media of his great deed .How about when you ignored/forgot sorry to get permit's not so quick then,lol.The trash collection guys in my opinion could care less about watching for crime, They want to get their route completed and get home.And at times can be very dirty about the trash.I have seen it on the streets after they have just picked it up.I remember when the trash collectors carried a broom and a shovel and cleaned it up. Half the time they don't take the trash it's easier to hand out pink notices for being to heavy ect, when my young daughter carried it out to the curb. Work with the police. Good idea how about police work with civialian's also and not look at us as if we are below them.

Why not arm the trash collectors and let them shoot drug dealers?
