Our brilliant city officials in Amarillo have done it again.
Regarding the city’s “Bulky-Item Pick-Up” program, I believe approximately six households use one alley Dumpster. But now the city wants the Solid Waste Collection division to stop at the front of every house to pick up trash.
I’ll save taxpayer dollars for these daily pow-wows.
Just throw trash in the front yard, and pray for the next Panhandle wind to blow it away.
Or let stray dogs have a banquet every day. Since dog owners let their dogs go to the bathroom in front yards, home owners won’t have to fertilizer their lawns again.
In addition, demand guests parked in front of your house move so they won’t block trash picker-uppers.
I’ll just bet our illustrious city fathers have conveniently found a vendor to supply you with the trash can of their choice.
Maybe we’ll get really lucky and get one of those orange barrels that are blocking every street in town.
