“Dear PoPville,

We keep having our trash and recycling bins stolen from our back alley. Every time we have to replace them, we have to pay $95 to the city. We’ve called the Department of Public Works to explain the situation, but they don’t really care that our trash/recycling bins keep getting stolen. It’s basically our problem and we just have to keep buying them. In addition to the continuous cost, it takes several weeks to get a new trash bin from DPW, so every time this happens we have no way of throwing out our trash/recycling for several weeks except to be super awkward and put our trash in underfilled neighbor’s bins. Help!

Would appreciate any advice!”
