At what point is the City of Batavia responsible to replace my garbage can because it was hit by a car again when it was not placed away from the edge of the curb on a windy day? I leave the house before the trash collector arrive and I return after 4 sometimes after 10 pm on garbage day. I can't be there to take my can back up. But you can bet that if I put a bunch of bricks in the bottom so it can't blow away I would get a citation for something.
Replacing my can every 3 months is getting ridiculous. Either let us get cans like Suburban Disposal that a heavy enough not to blow away except in the worst storms and get a lift on the trucks, or come up with some other solution before I bill the city.
