I want to give a huge shoutout to the town sanitation department. We recently moved from a condo into a house. We had MILLIONS of boxes, with acres of paper wrapping the contents. At the end of the Fourth of July week, we had a garage full of empty boxes stuffed with paper. We HAD to get rid of them.
With little hope ... we had moved from the northeast where towns were not noted for cooperation with town residents. I called the sanitation department at 10 a.m. on the Friday. A very nice lady answered, I told her my problem, she said, no problem. If i would just put them out where I normally put garbage, they would pick them up that very day. I was totally boggled. With hope but not expectation, I put out the no fewer than 50 boxes. AND THEY TOOK THEM ALL AWAY!!!
So, the next time you are complaining about our town, think of how lucky we are to have such a great sanitation department! They are THE BEST!!
