Organized giveaway

Dear Editor:I was very impressed with the organization of the compost pickup provided by CalMet last weekend. I expected the worse and I received the best. I expected long lines and mass confusion. I expected to have to shovel my own compost into my containers and I expected to have to load and unload the containers. Because of my low expectation, I used small containers that I could lift and brought a shovel along. I even brought a book to read while I waited. Instead, there was virtually no line, the loading pattern was well marked and there were men to guide us around. Other men picked up our containers, filled them and returned them to our vehicles. The whole operation took only about five minutes. Now that's efficiency. Hats off to CalMet. -- Don Niemand, Downey
