    All the communications in the world will never make a bit of difference to some (actually many) people.
    I can promise just as sure as the sun is going to come up tomorrow that I will see people putting their trash out on Friday , Saturday and Sunday for Monday collection, despite the LAW that trash is now supposed to go out on the morning of collection day only.
    These slobs will then watch their garbage sit by the roadside (their gate) for 7+ days and get strewn all over by winds after the rats and birds have a good go at it . They will look the other way and say ‘it’s not my trash/problem now’.
    This new holiday schedule has been in effect for years now and people still can’t seem to get it .
    I think it’s way past time for Minister ‘get’s things done’ Burch to start coming down hard , VERY hard , on these people.
    ( I have noticed recently that in certain areas , but nowhere near enough , signs being posted concerning when trash ought to go out in relation to collection day)
