Support PoP!

“After several polite check-ins with DPW and reassurances and apologies on their part, we still do not have a trash can.”

“Dear PoPville,

In March, my trash can was gone when I went to bring it in from the curb at 8am. It was clearly marked with our house number, and we looked and never found it. We live in Mt. Pleasant. On March 23, I called DC DPW to inquire about next steps, and submitted the $45 charge the same day online for a replacement.

After several polite check-ins with DPW and reassurances and apologies on their part, we still do not have a trash can.

Is this typical? What is going on? Wondering what readers have experienced.”

I guess this answers my question about this one.
