Mayor Wants No More “Free” Trash Collection Service

Do you have an elevator speech? How do you answer the question, “What do you do?” It’s been said you only have 30 seconds to impress your sales prospects and customers. Actually, it could be even less! If you’re selling products and services it’s critically important that you can answer the question – what do you do.

Free Stuff in a Box in Telluride. The “Free Box” appeared sometime in the mid-1970s, back when Telluride was simply a small mountain town. Those who had an item they no longer needed would drop it off in the “Free Box” for others to use. It’s still that simple. Most of the items in the “Free Box” are clothing and small housewares, but you never know what you might find. The 10 gallon hat might belong to a celebrity resident like Tom Cruise! The Free Box is located on North Pine, just off of Colorado Avenue (Main Street).

Many website contact forms are generic. If you are creating forms for your customers, make it as specific as possible. An example is Graduate Sales in Wichita Falls, Texas. In their contact form, they merely ask for basic information from the customer. Of course, don’t forget to comment. Customers will not fill out this form to inquire: they will either call or send an email. Since Graduate Sales did not provide an email, they will most likely call, and hopefully, get an answer from the business owner. The contact form that they provide did not ask anything about order information such as products, quantities or delivery time. It’s a waste of web space.

If you suspect an infestation in your home, please watch some of the free YouTube video available for directions of what to do next. And then call a pest company that specializes in bedbugs. Remember – don’t panic. Bedbugs do not normally carry diseases. They’re just disgusting to have around.

Anthropologists have documented the modern bed bug outbreak back to the Sydney games. Tens of thousands of people living in close proximity and then all leaving back to their corner of the world caused the bugs to spread like a virus. At first it was mainly hotels that had the biggest problem, since they constantly see an occupancy turnover. If you’re staying in a hotel, it is smart to check the box spring, behind the headboard and inside the dresser drawers for signs of bugs. If you can pull the dresser away from the wall, that is a good place to check as well. Proper bed bug control starts with ensuring you never bring the bugs home with you in the first place. Call the experts at Gulfstream Radon Testing if you find a bug in your home. The sooner you act, the better.

Eliminating standing water is the key to curbing the mosquito population on your property. This is where they breed and develop. Dump out anything that holds even a few ounces of water for more than a day after a rain. Turn containers upside down and don’t let tires or other water-holding objects accumulate. A pest control agent can help reduce the number of mosquitos already hatched and feeding in your yard.

Flies walk and lay their eggs on manure so you surely don’t want them landing on your counters or food. Check your window screens for holes and make sure your windows doors have good weather stripping.

Some people just select their waste management company based on price or how often they will pick up your trash. However, it is a good idea to take some time and look into what your waste management company is doing to protect the environment. If you are going to pay for trash removal anyway, why not give your money to company who is helping provide us with a cleaner, healthier environment?
