While this may be true, I don't see why heavy trucks need to be driven across grass and up sidewalks in the morning for trash collection, especially in areas where there are paved roads RIGHT THERE. People are walking in the park and walking their dogs in the morning, and the grass is often wet at the time with rain or morning dew. The heavy trucks tear of the turf and compact it, causing damage, and they are a danger to pedestrians and pets as well.
Just this morning I watched a truck drive across a short span of the grass form one trash can to another, and then up the sidewalk, when there was no reason for it to not be on State or Willett streets. It seems more a matter of laziness or a lack of training than an actual necessity.
This is still happening. Just this morning I saw a dump truck drive the length of the park on the lawn just to empty trash cans that could be reached from the street.
There is also much unnecessary use of golf carts and the tractor-mounted leaf blower. Staff drive around and around the park in golf carts chasing single pieces of trash, or blowing a handful of leaves that have fallen. Very inefficient and expensive. There needs to be a departmental review and overhaul of how such work is done in Washington Park.
Sorry, this issue does not have any images or videos.
