    Let me get this straight: we are going to pay overtime pay to pick up East End garbage on Saturday that was already picked up just 24 hours earlier on Friday?

    • Hurricane says:

      @ Facts, not even 24 hours earlier. It doesn’t usually get picked up until late Friday nights if even that. The whole department is a joke. And these announcements make it laughable.

  2. Hurricane says:

    Bunch of BULL! Except, we know and understand there will be no collection on the actual holidays, but it’s anybody’s guess when the garbage will get collected. More often than not, it’s never when it should be.

    Amazingly they’ll have it all picked up so they can knock off early. But regularly you hear them out there at 9 pm.
    Merry Christmas.
