Garbage has been piling up for the last couple weeks, ever since the city took back over collection. The Army Corps of Engineers had been in charge, and had been doing a bang-up job as far as I was concerned. The amount of debris removed from our little side street in Mid-City was truly astonishing, and they seemed to come through every few days.
Now that the city’s in charge, it’s been another story.
Finally they came through our neighborhood yesterday. Good thing too, because a bunch of people were getting so upset they were planning to dump their garbage in front of City Hall.
They removed most of the bagged garbage, but not all. For example, they didn’t touch Craig’s pile:
I tried to tell him to separate!
I think this is going to be an ongoing problem for the foreseeable future.
