Garbage pickup



Following a spate of blistering criticism in The Times-Picayune and other press organizations, and letters saying the city should go back to the Corps of Engineers' garbage pickup, Waste Management is finally getting the message.

One resident I was talking to yesterday on State Street above Fontainebleu said that the garbage truck passing down the street was the first he'd seen in weeks. Within the space of a couple more hours, two more trucks moved down his street looking for garbage. And that was a Sunday.

Amazing!

Ya, they were running in Carrollton yesterday (Sunday) as well--but only the downtown/uptown streets as they got the river/lake streets earlier in the week.

Yeesh. I remember running out to thank the garbage men in December. I'm grateful (maybe stupidly so) that they pick up trash here once per week. Oh, for the bygone days of twice-per-week pickup. Still, I'm happy that there isn't a five-feet-tall pile of debris in front of the house.
