The headline in the Weekend Missourian said: “Storm Didn’t Stop City Trash Crews.” The mail may not have been delivered the day after the snowstorm that hit Washington Sunday, Jan. 5, but the city’s refuse and recycling crews didn’t miss a pickup Jan. 6, or during the rest of the week.

Working on one of the crews is not the most attractive job in the community. The shaggers who work off the packer trucks have an especially tough job even in nice weather. They performed beyond what was expected because of the snow and ice on some streets and along the gutters. On top of that, it was cold, around zero, when they started their rounds and never got above the teens.
