“We keep having our trash and recycling bins stolen from our back alley.”

“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!”
