More Trash-Collection Musings

April 14, 2008 at 2:59 pm (Uncategorized)

At the risk of making this blog garbage-truck themed, I just have to ask:

Why is all garbage collected between 5AM and 9AM? I mean, do the garbage-collectors just go home afterwards? Do they have other things to do? Why not spread it out throughout the day?

Or maybe they do. But everywhere I have ever lived, garbage is collected in the early AM. Makes me wonder if garbage-collectors are special creatures that can only exist in our dimension in those early morning hours….

    I think it’s because that’s when they have the best chance to tie up rush hour traffic! I can’t tell you how often I get stuck behind garbage trucks on narrow residential streets on my way to work.

    I happen to be lucky enough to live in a building where on trash day, the men have to drag the dumpster out to the road to empty it because my driveway is too narrow for their truck. The whole activity of the dumpster dragging at 8 AM on a Monday morning sounds like the world is coming to an end. Even the cat is scared of the horrific noise. Did I mention Monday is my day off?
