3,300 garbage collectors in Teamsters Locals 301 and 731 walked off the job yesterday when contract negotiations broke down. What's that mean for you? If you live in a single-family home or a building with fewer than four units, your trash will still be collected. However, if you live in the suburbs or in a larger building, limit your consumption.
