Slatington Borough Council listened to an upset citizen and supported him in his claim against the borough's garbage collector. Leroy Sheckler of East Church Street had several items including some lights and a power saw taken by the garbage collectors claiming the items were not set out as garbage. Sheckler made it clear to council that he set the items out to begin loading his truck and the items were only set out after the trash collectors had already picked up the garbage. He said they took the items on a return trip.
