Allied Waste competence

Allied Waste hasn't picked up our recycle bin, which is paper, glass and plastics, for three (3) weeks now, actually four. In Lake Forest Park, WA Gross incompetence? No, it doesn't smell bad. Just incompetence. They changed our pick-up day from Monday to Friday, which would add 4 days to the time it sat. But they also switched the alternating weeks for recycle vs. yard waste. So that added another week. So we are one business day short of a three-week delay. The normal alternation makes it four weeks. You would think they would put on extra people for all the extra. After all, they initiated this change. They did tell us that they would pick up overage materials without charge. No. There are blue bins on the street everywhere and lots of boxes and paper sitting on the ground. A phone call to their number: "Normal business hours are Monday through Friday, 8 am to 5 pm." Since they won't listen to me, I will complain to you. Call 206-682-9730.
