    It's 6:30pm on Friday, and the trash has not been picked up yet on Leverington Ave. (Recycling was picked up Thursday about 8:30am, right on schedule.) Anyone know what's up?

    Snow, rain, locusts, UPS truck blocking your street. Could be a few things.

    How about yet another city administration who somehow refuses to believe we live in the NE part of the USA, where we have to deal with things like crappy weather and fails to prepare accordingly? Why should South Street look like the Great Wall of Trash has invaded?

    And it's 9:06 Saturday morning and they're picking up the trash!

    It is one incompetent higher upper city worker that decided to pass collecting on thursday trash collections as a new year gift like usual.
    The following new tear on monday the weather man predicted that we would have 6 inches or more of snow tuesday or wed.
    Then the City streets dept declared we ain't picking NO trash up in the back in a Tweet.
    WE can plow with those trucks but we can not PU trash in the back, the usual BS.
    Followed by the next day tweet to hold your trash if you are a thursday trash for next week.
    But the Thursday would have actually been a friday due to new years.
    But we only had about two or three inches and the lazy trash collectors earned two days off with pay.
    Our city is run by the laziest $100,000 year workers.
    The evidence is in the tweets that only 17,000 people actually read.
    What about the other 3 million that have their trashed PU?
    We can not even have decent trash removal in the winter every year the same BS Thursday trash NEVER picked up for weeks.
    Every single winter the same old story. Lazy workers. Then trash and dirt fly around the streets and the goonies city sanitation police
    hand out tickets that the trash collectors started this Catch 22 situation.
    I could write a book about the nasties in Philly.
