Is the city’s garbage collection again in crisis?

Dear Editor,
It would appear that the contracts for the private garbage collectors were not renewed, or at least one private contract was not renewed for all areas they once served (Cevon’s, which served the Cummingsburg area, have indicated they were not awarded the contract for this area).
The other private contractor has been sidelined. So, now the City has new garbage collecting arrangements, and has changed the collection days without notifying residents. So, garbage put out on Wednesday will not be collected in some areas until another day. In the meantime, dogs, cats, rats, junkies and other elements are having a field day with the garbage.
Could ineptitude be any greater?
