  1. My bulk trash pickup was 10-12-22. area #8. You posted that your running behind and the trash will be picked up around 11-12 22. It is now 12-1-22 and still no pickup. The next thing you tell us is that we are trying to do are best. Your best isn’t good enough. We pay for this service along with reg trash pickup. WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO SAY THAT MIGHT MAKE ME BELIVE YOU?
