The other day I raked the yard and made a few large piles of leaves. We only had two recyclable lawn refuse bags, so I shoved as many of the leaves in them as I could (standing on the leaves to compact them). I filled both bags easily, plus a barrel. And there are still a lot of leaves left over. The bags and barrel were left on the curb for the yard waste folks to pick up.
Yesterday, as I was pulling out of the driveway, I noticed that the lawn waste bags were gone, but the barrel was still full. I thought perhaps the yard waste puckup had rejected emptying the barrel for some unknown reason, but had picked up the bags.
However, they hadn't come by. When Maggie called me later, she told me that everyone else on the street still had yard waste out. My two quite-filled leaf bags were missing. They were heavy enough that the wind shouldn't have affected them much. We looked down the street to see if they had rolled away... the bags are nowhere in sight. They are gone... leaves and all. There is no pile of compacted leaves near where the bags were.
Why would someone take two, somewhat heavy, leaf-filled yard waste bags? Seriously? What happened to them?
