    Default Making money from garbage...

    Have not seen anything like this before; I live in a community of 2200 homes

    Can a security company partner with a waste company to make some money?
    I can see it now just trying to decide where to mount the surveillance camera on
    the garbage truck...

    I got a better idea, instead of turning "Sanitation Engineers" into part-time cops/spies, lets turn cops into part time garbage men.

    Make it part of a cop's job to pick up random litter.

    That will give them a chance to 'get out of the squad car' and make causal friendly contact with residents while doing something useful and appreciated.


    Seriously, why would anyone need to tell garbage men to call the cops if they see something worth calling the cops about?

    Today's American garbage men are already pretty heavily trained in equip operation, HazMat(several levels, IIRC) and "community relations" (which includes a whole bunch of stuff about how to handle various requests to do out of the ordinary things), etc.

    While I'm certainly "bullish on security" as USA descends into 3rd World Chaos, all this recent "militarized society"(much of it "War on Terror" related) reminds me of how the Aztecs were a "Nation of Warriors" where in theory EVERY adult male was a warrior, first and foremost, and all other's prime duty was to support the "War Machine" and look what happened when 100 Spanish showed up.



    In other Waste Management Security fun-facts, I can remember in 1980 when the garbage men refused to service Hunter's Point (referred to as "HP" in rap music) in Frisco without a police escort. And that was when they manually hoisted garbage into the hopper, so any garbage man would a big burly "mountain of muscle".

    Being as "Waste Management" is traditionally an Organized Crime strong hold, it is wise to have them engaged in surveillance of your neighborhood and "partnering" with police?

    I did forget about the organized crime aspect; but there is money in the garbage business.
