Try Polycart Handles Toward Street
Would the trash collectors prefer the polycart handles to the street ... instead of the way we had to set them for automatic pickup?
-- Ted Wright (8/22/2007)
That would make it easier for them to grab the polycart for hookup to the truck. Since we have had the guys on the ground, my phone calls about missed trash has gone down by 80%. We are still in the learning process about our routes but we are getting better and faster each day. If the handles are turned toward the street it would make it easier to grab the carts. Thanks for the question.
