Does anyone have a garbage truck I can borrow?
For the past 10 years, I have ordered wood chips from The Chicago Department Of Forestry. Wood Chips keep our yard from becoming a mud pit. I ordered a full truck load twice a year. The city delivered them in a great big garbage truck. When Cole was little, it was almost as exciting as Christmas. A delivery date was never guaranteed; when the “wood chip call” came you dropped everything, met the garbage truck, watched the driver dump the chips and quickly move the wood chips from the alley into the yard. Chicago discontinued the service. Today this letter arrived one year after my initial wood chip request. During an earlier follow-up phone call, the city informed me the wood chip program was canceled but they neglected to tell I me, I could bring my garbage truck to the wood chip location and load her up. Good to know. Really.
Letter from Chicago Bureau of Forestry
Dear Katie Ruscitti:
Our records indicate, you placed a request for mulch to be delivered to you in July of 2009. Due to overwhelming economic constraints at present, we are unable to honor your request.
However, I am to happy to announce, that you may bring your garbage truck to our site and load it with free mulch.
Best wishes and thank you for your patience and your service request.
