Michael Abel started this petition to Waste Management

Incline Village General Improvement District entered into an exclusive agreement with Waste Management to pick up household trash and bagged yard waste consisting of pine cones, pine needles and small brush during the Spring and Fall cleanup seasons. Most Spring cleanup is accomplished in April and early May of each year. Waste Management (W/M) normally sends out labels to all W/M customers so their drivers can identify the bagged yard waste customers place at the curb for pick-up.
 
Waste Management is currently violating the agreement by presently refusing to pick up bagged yard waste. Their customer service agent told this customer that said pickups shall not occur until mid-June and maybe not even then. They have told our IVGID managers that their employees are fearful to do this work. But how can bagged yard waste that has been sitting in the sun harbor anything toxic or dangerous? This bagged yard waste is much less hazardous than our ordinary exposed household trash that they are picking up every day!
 
Interestingly, W/M still makes debris box service available for dump boxes at a substantial extra cost of $212 for a 6-yard box.
 
Hundreds of homes in Incline Village and Crystal Bay have thousands of bags just sitting in their yards and at curbside waiting for W/M pick up. These bags are very unsightly. Their contents are easily combustible.  These bags present a clear and present fire danger to our entire community. We are not Reno or Fernley. We live in the forest in a fire zone that becomes more dangerous as the weather heats up and the fire danger increases.
 
We demand that:
 
Waste Management, Inc. comply with the terms of their contract with IVGID and immediately arrange for their staff to start picking up our bagged yard waste whether it is labeled or not.
