Naples is drowning in trash

Check out this story from NPR I heard on the radio today. Naples has had no garbage collection since the end of December, less than one month, and they are in serious trouble. While there seem to be politics behind the reasons for why the garbage isn't being picked up, just imagine what would happen in your town if the trucks stopped coming. Seems to me that if there was less packaging, less waste, and more worms, they'd be a lot better off than they are right now.

We don't have trash pickup where we live. We have to bring it to the dump (transfer station) ourselves. They do have recycling - paper in one truck, and bins for "co-mingled recyclables" - glass, aluminum and plastic.
