For about two weeks locals heap one bag of trash onto the next and hope in vain that Kansas City picks up the worsening mess.
To wit . . .
BY MONDAY SOME KANSAS CITY NEIGHBORHOODS WILL HAVE THREE WEEKS OF TRASH STACKED UP!!!
Of course allowances can be made given the recent arctic temperatures but there's simply no denying the growing mountains of garbage that need to be collected.
The situation is worse from Westside to Brookside with some of our Red Bridge, Paseo and Waldo neighbors chiming in on the crisis as well.
The city has warned that trash pick up will be "slow" but didn't say that it wold come to a complete halt.
It gets worse . . .
For the most part the record-breaking cold has kept the trash safe from animals. Now, with temperatures warming up, the trash is starting to thaw as well. If KCMO doesn't pick up the garbage removal pace expect critters to create an EPIC mess on local streets and the stench to pollute neighborhoods.
