I just need a minute of your time to rant about the worst company on earth – Casella Waste Systems. They are the devil. Every week when the recycling guy from Casella comes to the Turtlepad he leaves behind a sea of paper all over my front lawn. Like clockwork. I watched it happen last week as the asshole took the recycling bin, dumped it into the truck, and papers started floating around everywhere. Rather than pick them up, he just jumps back in the truck because doing his job is apparently too much to ask for. That’s why Worcester is the only city in America that gets covered in trash because we’re trying to save the environment.
Anyway, they also do trash and they evidently think the rules of the road don’t apply to them. I needed to park in in this lot downtown the other day, but I couldn’t pull in because this was blocking it:
First of all asshole, just because you’re driving a garbage truck doesn’t mean you get to park headfirst into oncoming traffic. So I sat there for 15 minutes as this guy went into the alley and pulled out can after can to throw in the truck:
But he didn’t have to park there. He could’ve easily just parked across the street. However, that would require not being lazy, and if you work for Casella Waste Systems it’s a rule that you have to be lazy. So I went up to this guy and asked him to move his truck. He told me he was “just doing his job.” I then pointed out to him that he could easily just back up and allow me to pull into the parking lot, but this evidently was too much work for him because he works for Casella Waste Systems. So he went back and got a few more canisters while I waited in traffic and forced a big line to pile up behind me.
In a place I like to call “the real world” companies with shitty customer service don’t get rehired. But in Worcester this is acceptable. Casella Waste Systems is the devil.
