Garbage piles

By Bruce Felps

Dallas Sanitation Services has called it a week.

The department already postponed recycling collection until Monday, but until this morning officials still planned to roll garbage collection trucks through Saturday to make up for lost time.

Well, last night’s snowfall put an end to those plans, and the department, through a message dispatched from the city’s public information office, cried “uncle.”

“Rather than risk our heavy trucks losing traction and colliding with parked cars, fences, and other property, we’re suspending garbage and recycling collection until Monday for the safety of all involved,” department head Mary Nix said in the e-mail message.

So, don’t expect any collection services until Feb. 7.

Good luck, and Godspeed as we await the Great Thaw of ‘11.
