Has anyone here ever had difficulty picking up trash or having it picked here in Camas? Yesterday, my cans between the regular trash and the yardwaste was only 40” apart. Charlie, the city garbageman, did not pay attention and caused damage to my fence. When I noticed the damage, I walked out of my house and saw that Charlie was not practicing social distancing nor wearing a face mask. I mentioned the damage to my fence, he told “Good luck with that, they won’t fix your fence and I’ll see to that!” His claim was the garbage cans were too close. Additionally not just the arrogance behind his statement, the fact the trash cans are just left in the road when done and are driving hazards for drivers. I sent an email and made a phone call to the Operations Center, I’ve heard nothing back from either communication. If they are or not going to pay is one thing, to not communicate back as a public agency is completely disgusting as tax payers pay exuberant amounts money and these public employees work for us. Lest they not forget, the taxpayer is their employer. I will follow up.
