My wife Sherry, without her love and guidance, I would not be where I am today.

What is the most interesting item you have found in the trash?

The most interesting item I have found is an American flag.  I was shocked to see such a significant item tossed into a dumpster.  Being a proud American, I was upset to see this.  I now display that flag on my camper, she has a lot of life left in her.

As part of our long-term strategy to improve service, we recently executed a reroute in our private subscription areas, leading to a change in service days for certain customers. This transition, compounded by two weather-related delays, has resulted in increased call volumes and longer than normal hold times. In addition, drivers are still learning their new routes. We anticipate operations will return to normal in the near future and want to thank our customers for their patience during this transition. Please check the map on our homepage if you are unsure what your new collection day is.
