    Has anybody other than me had problems with waste management picking up your garbage lately?

    Last week they missed our street Monday and Thursday. I called and they finally came out to pick it up. This week I called again because they missed Monday. I just heard the truck outside picking it up.

    What's up with that?

    We had the same problem in Old Pt. Washington last week. Rarely do we have a problem with pick up here, so something major must of put a blip in the system if you did not get pick up across town.

    :dunno: i haven't had any problems, but maybe it's because the trucks are getting full faster due to increased tourist population so they have to make more trips to NoWal.

    I asked if there was a problem with employees, gas hikes, and such.

    They assured me no issues.

    I honestly think they forgot about us. duh..................

    We'll see if they make it Thurdsay without a call.

    It's not unusual in Blue Mt for trash to be picked up a day late during the season.

    It's been that way for a few years.

    I thought the schedule had changed, but figured it was a holiday/me not remembering issue.

    Not to dwell on this Buz, but our garbage has been consistant Mondays and Thursdays (no matter what season) since I can remember. When they totally forget about you for a week and having to call the following as a reminder just doesn't cut it. I eat alot of shrimp and crab, you can imagine the stench.
    I'm curious to see what happens this Thurdsay........I'll keep you posted.

    They missed me a couple of times last month in Old Point Washington. Who know's, maybe a change of employees? They seem to be back on track again!

    Since the first of July, we have had sporadic pick-ups. Our schedule has been regularly Wed. and Sat for the last eleven years we have been here. Now, Saturdays have been missed several weekends with pick-up on Monday and then Wed. They even skipped Saturday, July 2nd and picked it up on Monday, July 4th. I have called and they said they were unaware of the missed Saturdays????? I really don't want to complain too much as pick-up is free here in Portland. Just contributing my experience.

    Ha! Milan looked a lot like Naples, when I was there. Garbage piled and scattered everywhere.

    Regarding the WM guys, I've never had a problem with them. I see those guys on the truck working harder and faster than any other people in South Walton. I don't know how they do it.

    I have had no problem with them here either. They are always here on both assigned days and as someone else said work very hard.
