“Dear PoPville,

I was wondering if others around the city, and particularly in Ward 6, are experiencing major issues with trash pickup? Trash collection is supposed to take place twice a week but the trash collectors always drive down the block without actually picking up the trash on multiple occasions, and everyone’s garbage is starting to collect on the sidewalks. We’ve called our council member for the Ward, the Deputy Mayor’s Office, and the head of Waste Management to no avail. Anyone else experiencing these problems and if so, have they gotten anywhere with anyone at the City?”

Ed. Note: I have found DPW (and 311) to be very responsive on twitter.
