Well, it’s neighborhood cleanup today in Museum Hill Neighborhood District in St. Joseph, MO.
The best part is that they’re traditionally parked very close to my house, which makes it easier on me.
The bad part is that we always have to keep an eye on the dumpsters to make sure we haven’t had a major infusion of new neighbors. Translation: people know about the neighborhood cleanups going on around town and try to dump their trash in the dumpsters as well.
I wouldn’t have a problem with it if they waited until later in the day when the actual neighbors had already completed their cleanup activities.
I guess on some level I should be glad that these people are trying to do some cleaning themselves, but in the end it just creates more work for me. They tend to try to throw things away that we aren’t allowed to take like furniture, chemicals, tires, and an assortment of other wastes that we get charged for in the event they find their way to the landfill.
It’s already a taxing activity, I just wish my “neighbors” wouldn’t make it any more so.
