Working out the kinks
Trash is just ugly, any way you look at it. And boy do we generate a lot of it. According to statistics, the average American generates 4-7 pounds of trash per day. So where does it all go? The City of Carthage contracts Progressive Waste Solutions to collect your garbage and transfer it to the East Texas Regional Landfill, which is on FM 2867 west of the Long Branch community. It’s a tremendous job that takes a great deal of planning and organization to complete. Does it always work smoothly? No. Does it occur without problems? No. But we’ve got some guys who have taken on this task and managed to work out most of the kinks.
