As a dog walker I continually am harassed about actually throwing dog feces in the black garbage cans behind peoples house. I'm told all kinds of ridiculous things. I have even had the police called on me. When I asked a man once why exactly he had such a problem with me throwing something in the garbage can that belonged to the city he told me it stinks up the whole neighborhood and I should throw it in my own garbage can. Other times people try to tell me their garbage fills up and my little bag of poop apparently takes up the whole garbage. I tell people you can call the city and request another garbage can. Anyway, please people can you be thankful of the responsible people who actually pick up after the dogs they walk instead of harassing them about how you don't like the fact that you have a city issued garbage can that I use to deposit it. You may always hire a private company to dispose your trash. I always try to use the city trash and not the ones that people actually pay for. As a person who pays taxes in this city I also pay for the use of the black garbage cans in your alley!
