Hitching a Ride

In January, Hamilton Township, N.J., Mayor Glen Gilmore helped municipal workers clean up uncollected garbage during a strike against Houston-based Waste Management Inc. by Teamster Local 701 members. Waste Management used replacement workers and, as of late January, the nearly-month-old strike had not been resolved. According to The Trentonian newspaper, collection problems had largely been corrected by the end of January.
