Cartoon critter

It turns out some folks in Evanston — about five percent of single-family households — may have to juggle their refuse carts when the new city trash hauling contracts take effect Nov. 1. The contractor’s trucks — which are bigger than the city’s — won’t fit down some alleys. So, with the city — which now picks up garbage — swapping out tasks with the contractor — who now picks up recycling — some recycling carts will need to be moved from the curb the the alley and garbage carts from the alley to the curb. Ponzi the pig doesn’t want to wait to know whether he’ll be affected.

  1. This is a huge problem

    We already have to pull our recyclying down a flight of stairs and I am lucky my husband and I fit enough to do it with no trouble. 

    But the trash can is another story.  Usually much heavier, even with recycling. 

    If waste handlers have a machine to pick up a container that is too heavy to lift, how am I supposed to get it down those stairs?
