    I can’t remember the last time my garbage was picked up on the day it was meant to.

  2. Tony says:

    Ahhh, so more overtime to be paid now to the garbage collectors. Good work Brother Chris – still working hard for your members.

  3. Family Man says:

    And then they’ll be overtime to pick up the garbage that wasn’t collected this morning.

    Cannonier off to a wonderful start. Lol.

      I suppose that you expect the Minister to come around in his car & pick up your trash for you. Is that it?

      Today was nothing short of a wildcat strike. Maybe Brother Chris will pick up your trash for you.

    And they wonder why the government can not bring down the debt

  6. Cow Polly says:

    Please Minister its not that hard ………. one pick up a week guaranteed to be on time is a far better solution than two pick ups that might or might not happen! Spread the routes over four days instead of two (understand the fifth day is for maintenance) to accommodate the smaller trucks and Bob’s your Uncle :-)

    My Friday garbage was either picked up late on Saturday or on Sunday morning – how costly was that??????

  7. TJ says:

    My garbage hasn’t been collected on schedule once in 2015. This isn’t a surprise, just an excuse.

  8. Family Man says:

    Garbage collection is never on time but recyclables are collected on time, every time. One is a public service and one is a private contractor. Which do you think provides the best value for money?

      I say give the regular trash contract to the same cats who do the recycling. Do you notice they just simply use normal dump trucks as well which means they don’t even need any fancy new trucks like what W&E uses! It’s a no-brainer!

    • Micro says:

      Ha. My recycling hasn’t been collected in three weeks.
