Garbage Day 22
Three weekly garbage pickups have come and gone through Point Douglas since this overflowing dumpster behind Main Street near Jarvis Avenue was first noticed. As this photo taken today shows, the trucks have left it alone, rotting in the sun and rain for at least 22 days. Perhaps Fresh IE can provide fresh ideas to mayor Katz on how to handle this term's election theme (Do the basics) better than he did his first campaign theme (Attract and retain the young). Ensuring that competent garbage-men--not the privatized kids hopped on speed to get them through the night shift--are removing trash thoroughly and promptly would be a good start.
