Educate me:

Is there a prototypical way to arrange these containers on one's trash flat (I.E. do the doors? all face the same way) or does it not really matter?



Thank you.

I just did a quick google search and the few pictures that came up showed no pattern.  Looks to me like random patterns on loading.

Just watched the trash train go by -- there is no ryme or reason to how the doors go. They get loaded right off of a flatbed truck onto the flatcar.

What everyone else just said.  And by the way that flat with the containers is way to clean.  Gotta trash the trash trains.

...or used cat litter...  :trollface: 

Not directed at you Lou, just off the cuff from one of the other threads where kittie litter was referenced as ballast...  :facepalm:
