    I keep breaking those aluminum ones from Lowes and Home depot. I had a plastic one called The Picker for a couple of years, It held up real well. What is a good brand that will hold up more than a week?

    The ones That I have were bought from Lowes several years ago, seemed to hold up really well. I'm syre they have cheapened them since then though. I paid around $20 for them.

    I never pick up trash actually. I 'm not the trash man and that's what I tell my customers and every one says well that's true. OK. Why would you touch used condoms???!! You re sick. hahhaha

    So, your time is not worth anything?

    I need to find something better also. Been using the ones from Home Depot, they work good just break too easily.
