Trash schedule remains same; crews awaiting help on large items

Tuesday, June 18, 2013 — Trash, bulk items and limb pick ups will proceed as normal for city of Albemarle residents according to Brett Burbeshaw, route manager for Waste Management.

“The pick up schedules are staying the same,” Burbeshaw said.

The devastation from last week’s storm is posing a challenge for Waste Management crews who aren’t equipped to pick up large diameter trees and branches.

“With the amount of destruction that was done it’s a big challenge for us and the city to handle. We’re looking for help from the state to get the volume picked up,” Burbeshaw said.

Waste Management is asking residents to limit the size of limbs to four to six feet in length. To ensure a faster pick up time, limbs are to be bundled and stacked uniformly, parallel to the curb.

“Most residents are aware of their pick up schedules and limit restrictions,” Burbeshaw said, adding that any questions regarding the pick up may be directed to the city of Albemarle.

    NEW YORK - Economists love hamburgers. Specifically fast-food burgers. This is partly because all right-thinking human beings love ground meat on a bun, but it's also because the sandwich makes a handy yardstick for international financial comparisons. The ingredients and labor involved in preparing a Big Mac are pretty much the same no matter where you are in the world, so by looking at how many hours of toiling it takes a worker to earn enough to purchase one, you can get a sense of how wages really stack up across countries. The Economist famously created the Big Mac index in 1986 to see which currencies were overvalued. It started as a joke. Now, as the magazine proudly notes, it's a subject of academic study.
