Sanitation services are lacking in Princeton

— I am a current resident of Princeton, and I have been living here for six months now. I moved from Lehigh Valley, Pa. Since I have been here I have noticed that the sanitation services are appalling.

 I have a community dumpster and my girlfriend’s mother has a personal yard with a trash can. Her mother and I both live in separate areas, Princeton and Green Valley. The trash men do not do their job accordingly. They do not pick up the trash cans or pick up what they drop. I pay the same as I did in Pennsylvania for my services yet they do nothing but the bare minimum.

They are paid to do a service to the community to help keep it beautiful and as far as I can tell they are horrible at it.  I just wish more people cared about our community that we call home.
