Many Cape Coral residents are tired of waiting for a solution to their trash pickup woes.
Waste Pro says it’s hiring subcontractors to help deal with its driver shortage. At the same time, the company says it’s actively recruiting new ones.
Waste Pro Division Manager Bill Jones said the driver shortage is something the company is experiencing nationwide. The company recently hired some subcontractors to help out with the bulk pickup, Jones said.
For anyone interested in a position, Waste Pro will train prospective drivers and pay for state testing and certification.
If you have concerns about trash pickup, there is an open meeting between the City of Cape Coral and Waste Pro coming up on Wednesday, April 7th at 2 pm in Council Chambers.
All are welcome to attend.
