In San Patricio County, residents in Taft are without trash cans.
"I saw them picking up trash cans," said resident Marcus Mendez. "What are you doing, those are mine. They said 'no we got to take them,' loaded them up and took off."
Mendez was one of many puzzled residents after his trash bin was taken by city workers over the weekend. Council members say after opening up bidding to other companies two months ago, a new trash service is coming to town. The new trash cans should be delivered to residents by Tuesday
