A Walnut Creek resident is fed up with the early, loud garbage pick-ups throughout Contra Costa County, and because of that, she’s started a petition, asking that the county force garbage companies to change their pick-up times.
Débora C. Rolim Finkler told Claycord.com, “I’m trying to gather a significant amount of signatures on this petition to change the garbage trucks hours to 8AM-8PM in the Contra Costa County. Most of the city noise regulations in our county determines 8AM-10PM for everyone, but right now, garbage trucks have a separate agreement that allows them to start at 6AM on residential areas. Well, last week I was awake at 5:50AM because of the first truck.
I started the petition focusing in Walnut Creek only, but the problem is all around us, so I added the whole Contra Costa County for target in my Avaaz petition.
If you’re also tired of jumping out of bed with your heart racing, please sign the petition too and help spread the word.
