Toronto Garbage Collection Issues

Not a season goes by without me having reason to complain about Toronto Waste and their garbage collection practices.  If they're not skipping houses, they are only doing one side of the street.  If they're not missing bags and bins, they're leaving them strewn all over the sidewalk.

It's the leaving things across the sidewalk that bothers me most.  Given the guy in the truck is doing everything using a remote control joystick, he should be able to put the bins back where he found them - and as a bonus, upright would be nice, too.

Since the old lady across the street died recently, I've one less reason to campaign for improved workmanship.  However, my significant other still has to push the twins up this street and it's a pain in the backside to have to do the city's job of moving the bins back, in order to get through.

Credit where credit is due, the directors and managers at City Hall do a good job of responding to this idiocy, but the guys on the street have no pride in their job, so any solution is temporary.  

In weeks, it's back to this:

We're long due the time to privatise this, so that there's a sense of accountability at street level and we don't have to put up with this, and get these guys off the job if they can't do it properly.
