Whittier's Trash

Is Someone or Something Getting into it?



In May of 2015 our City Council decided to privatize the City's refuse collection operation and dissolve the City service.  Henderson say in a Whittier Daily News article that "Our expenses are high".  If the City's expenses are to high then there is a problem with the City. 
Refuse collection is a very lucrative business.

Is this a ploy by the City to replace the millions of dollars spent by the City on the debunked oil project?  If Henderson and other members of the Council are involved the ressult at some point will be higher refuse collection fees.

In July of 2015 Whittier signed a contract with Consolidated Disposal to pickup trash on routes where City refuse trucks p/u trash.  The justification for this move is the amount of sick leave the employees are using causing drive shortages preventing the trash from being picked up.  Lets think about this.  You are about to loose your job.  You may not be getting paid for the sick time that you have a crewed.  What would you do?  Use the time to find a new job?

Whittier is in a disaster mode with this council.  They are being advised poorly and makiing terrible decisions that benefit someone.  Surely not us.  Look at the information below regarding what's going on with our trash.  Is Someone or Something Getting Into It?
