Commentary: Local waste issues shine light on anti-trust laws
By Ben Litchfield
For many years, I had a routine. On Sunday night, I would gather my trash together from the week and put it out for County Waste to collect on Monday morning before I woke up. Like clockwork, about 5:00 a.m., the garbage truck would rumble down my street in southern Stafford and pick up my weekly trash. They were never late. That’s why it surprised me when our new garbage company, GFL Environmental, did not pick up our trash until Wednesday morning. And it appears that I am not alone.
