    Garbage mess again!

    In Kenmore, if the garbage collector spills some trash on the ground, it is cleaned up right away by the collector. In Cheektowaga, trash day is RAT DAY!

    Did you call and complain? We had the same thing happen in Lancaster (village) and the next week, there was a WM pickup truck that came by about 20 minutes after the regular truck to make sure they were picking up any trash that was dumped.

    I'd call.
    I have to say, in Depew, they're pretty good at picking it up.

    Hey, when you start at 8:00 have to be at your next job by 11:30, who can waste time picking up scraps?

    Call the news and send them pictures. They love these stories.

    Make sure you use a garbage bag next time close it tight too.

    The photos were taken in 4 separate locations. The spills in question were not from my garbage container. I'm pretty sure that many of the residents don't "package" their trash according to town rules.
