Editor's Comment: Good! While I feel sorry for these poor guys who make their living by collecting other people's trash, they very often leave behind a greater mess than when they started. On the street where I live it just so happens that very often when I'm trying to drive home, the garbage truck comes by to pick up the trash. And, the street is narrow so I have to sit and wait for them to get done so they can move on and I can head home. The take all of the trash bags and quickly rip them open before they toss them into the back of the truck, looking mostly for aluminum cans. They always have a big trash bag tied to the back of the truck, there specifically to receive the cans and any other recyclable metal materials they can come up with. And in the process of ripping open the bags to search for cans, they invariably drop loose garbage and crap into the street where the truck was parked, and they never stop to pick it up. In other words, they are only there to gather up the aluminum cans, and by the way they have to collect the garbage to get them. I don't know how much they get paid for the cans but it's worth it to them or they would not be doing it. And the kicker is - these guys are doing this on company time.
