They were saved by a group of Marborg employees who just happened to be there picking up trash. They pulled open their shirts revealing their superhero outfits with tan capes and a large 'M' on the chest.....Hahaha!!! All kidding aside, prayers for the driver and passenger. Hope they recover fully.

Again, John Adams, we all know what a monopoly is and that there are inherent dangers to allowing one to exist. So what's your solution? The city to own and run trash collection? That's a monopoly, too. You want 3-4 different trash companies in town? Imagine the pollution, traffic etc from the constant criss crossing garbage trucks. You can't have it both ways. Also, if you're saying others' opinions are for sale, well maybe your's is. I'm thinking you're a local union boss who has had no luck penetrating Marborg and their well compensated and appreciated workforce. Again, read Botany, dontoasthecoast, and John Locke above.

You, John Adams, see what you want to see. Try reading the comments of John Locke and Botany. Your real issue is jealousy and hatred for success and refusal to admit that hard work and sacrifice over generations should be rewarded. Everyone on this thread knows what a monopoly is. This clearly is a natural monopoly industry (economics 101). The regulators, Marborg and even you know that. We're all past the definition you so demand. The fact is Marborg will be and always has been under regular surveillance and adherence to objective and measurable performance standards. Something I'd bet you've probably never agreed to. Go back to your subsidized housing, tenure and entitlement mentality.

How dare they promise to increase recycling percentages!How dare they reduce landfill volumes! How dare they convert their trucks to clean burning fuel! How dare they give mulch away for free! How dare they pick up extra trash for free!And as far is it being a monopoly, you've conveniently forgotten they must compete for the contract each time it comes up for renewal. Millions of dollars of capital are at risk every time the competition for the contract comes up.John Adams is happy with nothing and scapegoats success.

Oh, and another thing. So 99percenter and John Adams, have you ever been part of a non-profit and gone to Marborg for sponsorship? I have volunteered and worked with several non-profits and every single time I've gone to them to sponsor an event, it's a YES without hesitation. They pour probably hundreds of thousands of dollars back into the community. It's okay, because you'll find another reason to complain. It shows your jealousy of the success that comes from hard work. Our city should have more families and businesses like them. Instead we have too many like you.

So 99percenter and John Adams, let me ask you one thing. Would you rather have a national faceless corporation sending it's profits elsewhere or would you like a local family owned business employing dozens upon dozens of employees, most of them earning way more than a "living wage" and spending their hard earned pay here locally? I've known the Borgatello family for 40 of my 55 years and I admire not only their hard work, but the risk they take on a continual basis. Imagine the expense of maintaining over 100 trucks, each of them costing around $250,000. Imagine what happens to the business and employees if they didn't get the contract? Can you say "you're laid off" to probably 250 employees? Oh, and who would pick up the trash afterwards and who would separate recyclable materials and reduce the volume sent to Tajiguas? Do you realize this separation is done manually?! Both of you go ahead and spout off, because you'd both be the same complainers when Republic or Waste Management took the contract and laid off all the employees.
