Our trash bin was damaged 6 weeks ago when the wheels came off after it was dropped back to the street from the truck.
We have contacted public facilities repeatedly -- four times via email and phone calls -- to request a replacement. Crickets.
So I drove over the North Washington Avenue and made a request in person. The worker at the desk was very courteous, and assured me he would make his supervisor aware, to leave the old bin out and that it would be replaced in a couple days.
That was 3 weeks ago. Why do I have to jump through all of these hoops to get a damaged trash bin replaced?
I've lived in this city my whole life, so incompetence and mistreating taxpayers doesn't surprise me. But can your department get its act together and get us a damn trash bin?
