Actually, in town there is trash pick up and water service. I lived in (and still have a property in Tulipan) and have both of these services. Water is through Wapa and trash is paid for by government. I also got mail to my door in Tulipan.
I live in C'sted and would LOVE the number of the government agency that picks up your trash for free. Seriously. I'm gonna call 'em and get rid of the guys we're paying.
I do not get mail delivered to my address, but they do deliver it down the hill. I just figured they didn't want to walk up it.
I know of some other people in other places on the island who do, in fact, get FREE trash pickup. They don't know how it started and they don't want it to stop. So they just don't say anything and hope it will continue forever.
For most of us, though, "dump run" makes its way into our vocabulary pretty quickly.
Re: the Midland Road site. Yeah, it's weird. Maybe it's a being a single, white, female thing and not being able to dump my trash without being stared at by dozens of people waiting to pounce on what I'm pitching. No one's ever threatened me there, but when I tell people I occasionally use that dump, I get LOOKS like ... giiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiirrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll, did you bring the machete? I feel like prey there, and it creeps me out. But, yeah, no actual threats. YMMV
