Metro Nashville's Recycling Advocates Urge Caution Regarding Proposed Contracts

For years Metro Nashville has picked up the trash the old fashioned way, one bag at a time in trash cans in the alley or by the side of the road. This has required the countless labor hours of an army of trash men, all dedicated to getting rid of your dirty diapers and beer cans. You can imagine that so many bags and trash cans, lifted by hand, lead to a lot of back injuries and sick time. Well now things are going to change in a big way for metro residents. Say goodbye to your trash cans and back pains and say hello to "Trashcarts," a 96 gallon semi and fully automated trash dispoal method for all residents of Nashville's urban district.
