KANSAS CITY TRASH TALK CONTINUES: APOLOGY FOR LATE PICKUP HOT MESS!!!
A story that STARTED HERE ON TKC now earns a rare admission from City Hall of an ongoing problem.
Here's the word . . .
City Hall Seyz: "We know that many residents have been concerned about delayed trash/recycling collection the past several weeks and we want to update you on the situation.
"We expect our vendor to fulfill the terms of tis contract and we are working with them to monitor their work and to notify residents when we know they are falling behind. Recent work by Town & Country, now owned by WCA Waste Corp., has clearly fallen short of expectations due to that company's staffing issues.
"WCA has told the city that since it bought Town & Country, it has had to replace a large number of drivers who were not properly licensed and trained. WCA expects to complete that process in approximately two weeks.
"The City Of Kansas City apologizes for the problems with Trash and recycling collections, and wants to assure our residents that we will resolve these problems as soon as possible. When crews are running late, residents should leave trash bags at the curb rather than bringing them inside, as the crews ahve been working evenings and weekends to get caught up."
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
