Didn’t there used to be four men on each truck?
Now there are three. Mayor Richard Daley talked earlier this year about cutting the number to two.
Why not one?
One was picking up garbage, the other recyclables. The recycling containers now have yellow lids.
I don’t know why the guys in the picture on Douglas Street were out of their trucks. In the middle photo, you can see that for an ordinary pick-up, they don’t have to.
That proves it can be done.
When you see Daley announce one man per truck, you’ll know he’s serious about saving money.
