If there were ever any doubts about who has held sway over the city's trash industry, they were buried along with Cosmo (Dick) Taormina. On that spring day in 1984, top city officials crowded Anaheim's First Christian Church to pay their respects to the gregarious man some called the "garbologist." After the church service, a convoy of polished trash trucks--some from competing firms--met the long, slow funeral procession at the cemetery gates.

A garbage truck knocked over a telephone pole and power lines Monday morning, igniting a fire that burned five garages and caused $30,000 in damage, authorities said. No one was reported injured. The blaze, in the 3000 block of West Coolidge Avenue, started at around 8:10 a.m. in unattached garages in an apartment complex after a Jaycox Disposal Co. truck accidentally backed into the telephone pole, Anaheim Fire Department investigator Mike Feeney said.

Placentia residents interested in either a council seat or a city clerk position have until 5 p.m. Friday to apply. A City Council seat became vacant last week when Councilman Robert Kuznik resigned. The city clerk position is vacant following the resignation of Doris Black, who moved to Dana Point. With less than 30 days to make their selections, city officials hope to fill both vacancies at their Oct. 15 meeting.

Garbage collection in eight Orange County cities should be back to normal after Memorial Day weekend, as 220 striking workers returned to their jobs Friday. In a ninth city, Anaheim, households were to have had their garbage picked up by late Friday night, but businesses may have to wait until Wednesday for the Anaheim Disposal Co. to catch up. Workers for Anaheim Disposal, which collects from the city's commercial sector, ended their strike Friday afternoon.

In packed council chambers that had residents overflowing into the hallway, Councilman Bob Kuznik this week made his final comments as a city official. Kuznik, the target of criticism from some residents, announced his resignation Tuesday night citing "new opportunities." He said Wednesday that he did not resign because of "harassment or heat" but that "admittedly, that kind of activity makes it difficult for one to want to continue on." Kuznik is president of Anaheim-based Jaycox Disposal Co.

Garbage pickups came to a virtual halt in four Orange County cities and parts of five others Thursday as 220 workers from two Anaheim-based disposal companies quit work in what officials called a wildcat strike. The cause of the walkout was not clear, nor was its duration. The affected areas include Anaheim, Garden Grove, Brea and Placentia, some unincorporated areas and parts of Costa Mesa, Westminster, Stanton, Santa Ana and Orange.
