Last week we mentioned Russell Disposal and their wild cowboy driving of their trucks. The very next day on Thursday a Russell Disposal truck was backing up at a quick speed on one of the city’s smallest streets. We hope nothing bad happens. These guys do a great job. Why ruin it, and ruin someone’s life in the process, with reckless driving.
