Dear PoP – Trash Cans Shortage

“Dear PoP,

I’ve been trying to get trash and recycling bins from the District for the past two months without much luck (our recently-purchased house did not have them). I’ve been calling the 311 folks every few weeks to check in. On my most recent call, I was transferred to the Dept of Solid Waste where they told me that the bins have been back-ordered for months and that they have requests from March 2010 that have yet to be filled. Are other folks having this problem? How difficult is it for the District to order enough trash cans?”

Have other folks heard of this Trash Can shortage?
