Working with Philadelphia's municipal services is making me in favor of privatization honestly. I never would have imagined myself feeling this way.

I WANT Philly to handle these sorts of things themselves, but they've proven time and again to be so fucking incompetent. I guess what I'm saying is that the city has broken me and my idealism

How would privatization improve this?

There wouldn't be stupid disagreements about picking up trash. I pay you money you pick up the trash. WM does this for many munis and cities.

Glitter was working. It was a private organization.

Sure, on top of normal trash collection

Oh absolutely. I'm not suggested we privatize all sanitation, but the desire to block a private organization from EXISTING in this lane is preposterous.

Glitter allegedly comes to my block once a month (not that I have noticed a difference) because we can’t afford more and they force us to subsidize neighboring blocks. Trash collection comes to our block every week and has maybe been a day late once in the last year.
