County continuously misses scheduled trash collections

It seems like every edition of The Maui News has a notice concerning missed trash pickups that affect different areas of Maui County. This week, our street must have set the new record for a missed pickups. Our street in Kula was supposed to get picked up Tuesday. It didn’t happen. No big deal, the county refuse office said, “they are scheduled today” (Wednesday). It didn’t happen, again. Called Thursday, same thing, “they are scheduled today, leave your trash out.” Again, no pickup.

Friday is our regular pickup so I hope they will make this one. But I have to ask, what business could charge for two times a week scheduled pickup and constantly not fulfill the contract and still keep all the money customers pay? Sounds like a class-action lawsuit waiting to happen.
