Expecting workable garbage contract; got a mess

I was pretty unhappy with Walco when they pulled their stunt several years ago and held us up for more money in the middle of their contract. But I figured the commissioners would rectify things and set us up with a workable garbage contract. How hard is it to set up enough unattended bins and containment screening, and then empty them on a regular enough basis to satisfy the people of this county’s needs? What we got is a mess. Not nearly enough sites, not enough bins and certainly not enough servicing of those bins. Worse, no containment of the trash blowing all over the countryside.  The picture is from this morning, Sept. 16, at the Fairview bins. The trash has blown onto every field within several hundred yards in all directions. This is a disgrace.
