    Collection schedules ? Who reads them anyway ?

    Interesting to note that this notice only appeared mid-afternoon on Sunday and the printed schedule clearly shows no west end collection for tomorrow (Monday) yet the usual suspects (slobs) have been putting their trash out since Saturday night.
    BTW , these are the exact same people who haven’t yet realized that when Monday is a public holiday there hasn’t been any trash collection until Wednesdays (west end) but they still dump their trash outside their gates on the Sunday night before and the Tuesday .
    In case no-one knows it , and it seems that island wide few do , Derrick Burgess passed legislation when the PLP were first in that trash goes out for collection ONLY on the morning of collection day .
