Forget the Snow – Garbage is the Big Issue Now


It was very disturbing to see how many garbage cans are overflowing around town. I heard a quote a while ago. I’m gonna butcher it but it was something along the lines of the second most important city service after the fire department is sanitation. I can see why. I mean nearly every garbage can I passed around town was either filled to the top or overflowing. If these public cans aren’t emptied soon this will get very very ugly.

Another troubling note is that because the alleys are blocked the few garbage trucks I did see were stopping right in the middle of the road. The one below stopped on Park Road before 16th Street for a good 5 minutes snarling traffic.
