    I would assume that you guys work long hours everyday. Thanks for your hard work by the way! I'm going to guess the reason for the lack of trash-related information online is due to the fact that most workers/drivers are too tired to even fool around on the internet when they get gome. I know I would be! At the copper mine where I used to work at in AZ, our shifts were 12 on/12 off schedules. Now add a 2 hour commute to the schedule (1 hour drive to the site, 1 hour drive back home). The point is that I was usually too tired to do anything when I got home.

    Maybe you could start an online trend by creating a trash-related thread here and/or on other trucking websites, or just host your own domain and start your own site that way. Or, you could always start your own web log (blog) somewhere.

    i agree that a new sub section should be created. In the meantime, we can start a thread(or use this one) to discuss trash topics.

    Hey Trash Man, thanks for the suggestion. How about starting a thread for trash haulers and see where it goes? We've got a lot of sub-forums already, I'm hesitant to add more. If we add sub-forums for reefers, flatbeds, car haulers and other specific equipment types then we'll also look at adding one for waste haulers. So far, it's worked pretty well having those conversation threads take place in the Experienced Truckers sub-forum.
    Brickman, Ducks and Strider Thank this.

    I used to love hauling rolloff. Especially the Walmart boxes. It was like Christmas year round! :) All the landfill workers would flock around like a bunch of seagulls when I brought one of them boxes in. They throw alot of the returns away.

    I also use to fix and sell TV's. Many were just a fuse or cord. It's amazing what people throw away.

    Then Chattanooga started hauling their processed human waste to our landfill. We had to waller in it and before you know it, you were tracking it everywhere. That's when I quit.

    Actually what i really want to know is why we can't just have a union forum where we can actually debate pro and con among anything else we want to discuss without getting each post locked up within 5 mins?

    What would be the harm?

    But i digress............

    You can do that now, just use politics to do so.

    Every pro vs con thread turned into a heated and emotional thing with to many insults flying around. If people want to debate this and call each other names the unmoderated political forum is just the ticket for you.
    Admin and Ducks Thank this.
