JULY 2014 NEWSLETTER

 

 

                                           

 

                                             

 

Boy did I make a mistake when I mentioned Jose Mejia’s move to Idaho. Our manager of many years, Jose Hernandez, has been getting calls all month asking why he is leaving.

Jose H is here to stay! I should have known with 11 of our 42 employees named Jose, there would be some confusion. On the plus side, our three most recent hires, Baldemar, Hugo, and Roberto, have added some good men to the roster not named Jose. By the way, Jose Mejia, who is Jose Hernandez’ uncle, got a job as a maintenance gardener in Boise and is doing quite well.

 

PRICES! I hope I got your attention because our dump fee of 1 dollar per 32 gallon can will increase to 3 dollars in August. Let me explain. We have been losing money on this part of the business and ideally would like to haul as little as possible. It’s time consuming to transfer the debris from the little trucks to the 10 yard truck each day, haul it to the transfer station, and pay for the load ( by the ton).We would rather put as much as we are able into the green 96 gallon yard waste cans supplied by the city or county garbage collectors. These cans, as you know, add nearly nothing to your regular bill. Mulching your clippings right on site is an ideal option if you have enough space. Let’s work on individual solutions during July to help us cut down on hauling and save you from extra expense. Remember, we want to do as little hauling as possible.

 

That last paragraph was a bit much. Life was simpler awhile back when Dad put the yard waste in a pile and burned it. Date yourself and tell me that the smell of burning Sycamore leaves is a pungent memory from your youth. On weekends, entire Sonoma neighborhoods lived under a haze of smoke. Now if you smell smoke while on a stroll in the old neighborhood, the first thought is “where the heck is the fire department?” Enjoy the summer and remember Jose Hernandez is under long term contract and has no plans to move to Idaho.
