How To Get Big Appliances Picked Up In Pittsburgh

Can you picture what 45 tons of garbage might look like? That would fill up many barges or football stadiums. That’s the amount of garbage that volunteers collected during a recent cleanup along the shores of the Ohio River. Part of that cleanup action took place here in Pittsburgh. The kind of person who would dump trash by the river is just someone who is downright careless. You can’t call them lazy because it takes a lot of effort to load up their car with a tire, dog house or other bulky item then drive around looking for a spot to sneak off and dump their garbage. The only hope is that they’ll get caught someday and forced to clean up the streets themselves.
