Don’t paint all trash collectors with same brush

I read the letters regarding the problems with the trash collectors Upcountry and hope people don’t confuse what happened there with our county crews.

The county truck that provides rubbish disposal service in my neighborhood is the best I’ve ever seen. About two years ago, I put a small metal rod in my county-provided trash receptacle and it punched a hole that grew each week.

Last year, after a series of duct tape repairs failed, I found a replacement trash receptacle waiting for me when I went to take the container off the street.

My crew is great and never leaves a mess.

Sorry for you guys on the hill. Maybe the slope of the roads Upcountry has something to do with the problems.
