Toccoa Georgia's trash service involves a garbage truck with a wide claw capable of grabbing several bags or a pile of brush all at once. That seems like an ideal compromise for a City Solid Waste Utility committed to reducing injuries through automation and a constituency that cannot get behind the idea of roll carts.
I am unclear on the reason that Toccoa has 3 separate truck services: a roll cart regular trash pick up, a wide claw pick up for bagged trash / brush / old furniture, and a blue bin recycling pickup.
I see this service every time I visit family in Toccoa.
I do not know why this was not part of the public coverage of the debate in the Columbia MO area.
If there is any research or background work I can do to be of service on this issue, please let me know.
