I'm working on a corner lot, Power raking. Everyone had their garbage at the end of their driveways in situations like that I put the bags of grass with the regular garbage. So I had about 10 bags of grass on the curb already and was carrying more from the back the garbage truck passed and picked up what was there. So as I'm putting more bags at the end of the driveway a gabage man starts yelling from the other end of the cul du sac. I wasn't sure he was yelling at me and turned to get more bags a couple times. When the truck gets closer he's still yelling, saying that I'm breaking the law, he can get me fined and so on. I yelled back at him that I'll put garbage wherever I want and I've never heard such laws. It was pretty intense, then his supervisor pulls up while I'm still arguing with this twit. He says now your going to get fined and he said, I took bags from here but I'm not taking anymore. (it's not my house and I wasn't asking him to take more bags as they had already passed, they were working their way around a cul du sac, I was just puttin gbags at the end of the curb) I start talking to the stupidvisor and he trys questioning me, whats my name, do I own this company. Then I got rude to and told him its none of his business, that I will never take clippings to the dump. He actually told me he was watching another LCO a few blocks away and he's taking his clippings. I pulled out my voice recorder and told him I was recarding this conversation (even though my batteries had died: I didn't know that at the time) and told him I would be filing a complaint agaisnt him. The I told him the garbage man stole my property. I had a brand new role of gabage bags at the bottom of my pail, which was sitting upright at the back of my truck halfway up the driveway. I only had it partially full and was going to take it to the next job to fill it up there. He must have walked up the drive way pulled out the nearly empty bag then grabbed my role of new bags. I say tihs because everyone elses garbage cans when emptied were lying on there side at the end of the drive way while mine was still standing upright at the back of my truck halfway up the driveway AND they obviously had a beef with LCO's. They told me several times (this took about 15 minutes) Ppl arent allowed to have more than 8 bags. lco's have to take away all clippings. i can be fined and we must take away the clippings. They tried to represent laws that dont exist the idiot gives me a tag that they put on garbage when they don't take it away as proof. I read it in front of him and it didn't say anything about what we were talking about, lol. he told me to phone them and that he was on the phone with his boss blah blah. The supervisor gave me a roll of cheap bags that dont fit my garbage cans to replace what was stolen but i'm so choked I'm putting my thoughts on paper and am contemplating a police report. I already filed a complant with the city who told me there were no such laws. The background of this is that recently a company called BFI has contracted out garbage pick up it used to be city workers that did it and I guess they dont like LCO's in the spring clean up time and make up their own BS laws and try to intimidate us.
