I can't believe they put him in jail over picking up the garbage. I can't believe they didn't punish waste management. This just blows my mind!! They should have to take care of their own garbage. I get lawn crews can be annoying but a garbage truck??? It was his first offense and he get's 30 days in jail.

First : Anyone who calls 911 for a garbage truck picking up garbage should be fined. Not an emergency. 

 

A neighborhood that boasts having executives and professional athletes probably also has some political ties. Keep the rich happy and crap on everyone else. 30 days in jail for essentially a noise complaint? If that was enforced across the board, every college student would have served jail time at some point.

Privatized court that's just awesome. I hope they can afford the counter suit this guy should file. I can't stand people with more money than common sense. The guy is doing his job and a good job at it and that's what he gets. People wonder why no one wants to do "more" any longer.

I think every garbage collector should just ignore that part of the town. Let the rich a-holes figure out how deal with their garbage. I just can't believe they held him not the company responsible. They give him a route and a certain amount of time to accomplish that. This is the world we live in now. I really wish he could sue and get some money out of this because that is overkill for first offense. They should also have big ass signs stating that they have a noise ordinance because how are you supposed to know what the rules are in every little city.

I can understand everyone being annoyed at the noise at that hour of the morning. it would annoy me.

but surely a warning would be enough for the first offence.

 

if they did that to me I would be there at 7 01 am and make loads of noise doing it.

The best thing is my friends cars because were high school students have essentially no muffler.
