  1. My name is Dewayne Smith and I live in the 1900 BLK of Tammwood Drive. My trash collection day is Tuesday. On trash collection day, you can almost bet the street is going to be nasty with paper after the trash is collected. This is not the best area on the city but, we work and try to keep it looking decent. Do your crews carry equipment with them to get up trash they drop when dumping trash cans of even the trash that falls from their truck from previous stops? We’re trying to keep it from looking like the “hood” over here and your help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    D.M. Smith
