Trash pickup idea a good one

By The Bakersfield Californian

A previous letter writer proposed a great idea: Let's have all of those unsightly trash cans collected on the same day ("Rewrite trash contract; pick up cans same day," April 11).

The writer also pointed out that such a plan works in much larger metropolitan areas. Guess what? It also works in much smaller communities such as Pismo/Shell Beach, where curbside parking is at a premium and streets are very narrow.

This is not rocket science. Sure, it would take some creative scheduling, but it would improve the appearance of our neighborhoods, where cans currently clutter our streets three days a week.
