    Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property... Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.

    "A Rumpke employee told WKYT a homeowner was upset because the trash company does not pick up trash that is on the ground."
    I'd be surprised if it were otherwise. It's the customer's responsibility to put trash in the receptacle and the collector's job to empty the receptacle into the truck. If it were the collector's job to pick up loose trash then no one would bother putting it in the receptacle in the first place.
