  1. Everyone has their recycles out yesterday like we expected them to be picked up.
    Yet, recycle cans all along the street are still there. Last time my can was out and driver went right on by about 50mph.
    Possible to get the recycle can taken away and get another trash can in it’s place?
    I think I am all done with your recycling program.
    Arcadia Ave. north of Speedway
