[FONT=Verdana]IN THE LAST 2 MONTHS, I have been noticing an unusual amount of trash all over the roads and sides of roads, collecting in woods, banks, bushes, even people's yards! There seems to be a big issue with the trash trucks losing items from the back of the truck and leaving them to blow around and settle. [/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]I called in a complaint to the trash company who services Huntersville and they were not very interested in my complaint. I witnessed, while trash was being "picked up" one morning, that it was actually being distributed back onto the streets, and all over the ground! When I called and told the guy specifically where the problem had occurred he said “without a truck # there is nothing I can do”…but I know for a fact these companies keep tight schedules and know their trucks routes; this guy just didn’t want to deal with the complaint. Very irresponsible.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Point is, take a look around as you’re driving to work or dropping the kids off at school. Notice all the trash that's piling up on the sides of the road? Most likely it's from trash trucks, the drivers being careless and lazy. Keep an eye open when you see them picking up trash; how much is blowing back out of the truck all over our communities? Who cleans this up? Who is making these companies take responsibility for their actions?[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]In the 50-60 yards that I was watching this happen before we passed each other on the road, I saw the truck lose enough trash to fill up 2 large garbage cans!!! That is ridiculous!![/FONT]
