  1. except it’s not an oops…. two of my neighbors that I know of have “lost” their cans. If you look on the video you will see how he looks out his window doesn’t see the cans on the curb and continues on his way.

  2. The recycling truck can technically handle two cans (but not the garbage trucks – which are older), I have seen it, for some reason, this happened. It could be the reason he didn’t stop to take them out is because it is too hard, so they just replace it.

  3. Cans should be spaced far enough apart so the “claw” can reach in to pick up a can without moving the others. I keep my can 4 feet apart. So should you.
