And yet another indication that the economy is down. Less trash.
The cold weather in St. George, Utah, coupled with less consumption and a downtrodden economy, means there is less trash to pick up.
A disappointing combination for the local trash collectors, considering their paycheck is based up tonnage picked up and number of houses/apartments serviced.
…tonnage is down about 10 to 15 percent for residential trash, which means the drivers are bringing home anywhere from $25 to $50 less per week.
