    Hard to tell from the pic where they are going to lift from....but i would think they could prob still get in there. Either way you slice it....very crappy way to put snow. Nice find

    Not only sucks for the refuse company but is also a slip and fall waiting to happen when the trash is being taken out. Gotta love it.

    Bobcat time! Why would you plow the dumpster in like that in the first place. Not only does it have to be emptied, but they need to put stuff in also. :dizzy:

    I have seen a dumpster plowed in more than that and trash man got it no problem. Snow is soft and they put the forks right thru it and pick it up and move it. I would be really pissed if I was the business owner on that property, because I don't like to play king of the mountian before I throw the trash out.:yow!:

    Keep tabs on that gas station... Could be an opportunity for a new customer.

    Way to make friends:mad: It looks like the dumpster gets picked from the side with the sign making it the worst position to get it.. Those piles look frozen solid:realmad:

    I cant belive there really is that much snow in Delaware Ohio they must have plowed the whole lot into that corner.

    Well He was "Smart" enough not to stack the snow directly onto of the dumpster! So I guess this is one of those situations where you say "It could've been Worse!" Maybe he was Wasted!:drinkup:

    Ugly plow job, i always try to keep piles away from dumpsters.... With that being said sometimes they place the dumpsters in the worst spots. One of my commercial lots only has two decent areas to pile snow. Well this year they decided to place two small dumpsters in that area and also have a large dumpster sitting right in the middle of the lot:angry:....

    Depending on what type of buisness it is the dumpster might not get used that often. I know that is the case for me, I am in the packing / wholesale produce buisness and for us the dumpster only gets dumped like twice a month in the winter. compared to twice a week in the summer. The trucks that Waste Management has can be roughly 5 feet from the dumpster and still pick it up.

    He will likely put an arm in the one hole and yank it out a bit 1st, then shove the snow bank back with the bin..........That said, pretty crappy of the plow guy.

    the tanker driver is probably not going to be happy either, assuming those 3 caps are filler pipes.

    They will remove it with ease and then he will set it off to the side of the pile seen it happen many times.

    Poor plow job but the front end loader driver can get to that easily, IF he want's to.
