but they don't do that and if they broke it trying to reattach the way the homeowner wants, well it opens a whole can o worms. They do not attach ours either, but they also do not complain about having to undo stuff to empty our trash. we've had very good success with WM. we had to fire the other company because their driver had anger management issues

i'll tell you this, bungee cords do not work. Mine would pull it back and snap it like a rubber band. I was woken at 3am by what sounded like a shotgun going off.
Until mountain view stops removing all my ideas, i'll let them clean it up.

I have used "PINE SOL"the smelly brown cleaner in my trash sacks and alittle in the can---no animal comes near. Except ravens if sack is outside can.A friend says she wipes the inside of her can with bleach and no more bears.Course being able to close your can is helpful and periodically rinse it out.
