A Brit who used to post here reacted that way when I told him we don't have govt trash collection where I live.
He was firmly convinced that govt trash collection was "more efficient."
From what he said, I think he had a vision in his mind of traffic gridlock caused by thousands of garbage trucks.
It's sad how scary freedom seems to some people.
In the UK, rubbish is collected by the local councils weekly. Paid for by residents through local taxes.
