Hey watch out for the large wooden crate dumped under the viaduct on the westbound side. I swear this area is a veritable no man's land where anything goes..

  • Or it could have been a ruse to get someone to exit their vehicle to move the box, and then steal the car or rob the driver.

  • True, very true.. beware out there - ruses abound..

Blue Bins

Does any one else have a problem with the blue bin pickups. They haven't picked them up 2 times in a row. They are too fussy. First they had the blue bag fiasco and now they are so particular that if there's one small item that doesn't pass muster they don't pick the trash up. i will just have my tenants toss everything into the black trash bins. What a screwed up city!!

  • krw

    Yes, I think blue bins would still work. But I'm sure labeling every product with that symbol (which many already have) rather than those ridiculous instructions would make a world of difference.

  • Thanks, good to know that I'm not the only one trying to do the right thing but having to deal with all the rules. It's not just me, it's having to try to educate my tenants and then of course no control over the blue bins when they are outside.
