Do you know what really turns us on? Basic municipal services. Oh yeah, we’re talking about waste management, baby. Meow.
Sometimes when we’re feeling so nasty (because St. Louis has 55 daily trash routes and famously only had 40 to 45 working trucks earlier this summer), only one thing can fix it. And no, lover, it’s not getting a hot load dumped on us, it’s a hard-working city employee in uniform with a new vehicle. A new trash vehicle, that is. And the number of garbage-clearing vehicles has grown to a rock hard 71 trucks since a few months ago when our alleys were piled high with filthy, dirty trash. *licks lips*
