Thankful: Garbage Collection

I rolled the trash can out to the street on Monday evening, and by the time I looked out the front window on Tuesday morning, the can was empty. It's one of those "little" things that is so easy to take for granted -- and it isn't "little" at all. The mere existence of trucks which lift huge plastic cans and dump them easily into a collection bin is pretty impressive. An infrastructure which allows for bringing such trucks to collect trash from each neighborhood each week at a reasonable cost is even more amazing. I imagine there are some awkward spaces to navigate, and I know there are employees hard at work early in the morning, in all sorts of weather. Yep -- garbage collection is definitely on my thankful list!
