Talk about the wrong solution to a very small problem. Which pencil head at corporate championed the idea that Costco should remove all the trash cans from the gas station?
Mr. Jelinek, I expect better judgment from you. Not every idea is a good one.
There's never been any area to clean your windshield or check the air in your tires or get some air; you have to beg the surly dude in the tire center. Now, they won't even let you throw away the napkin that you used to protect yourself from the filthy germy gas handle and key pad.
Come on Costco, every gas station on the planet provides trash cans. You are supposed to be a MEMBERSHIP CLUB. You are supposed to give us the illusion of being special! This really sends us the message that we're truly, plainly, just revenue delivery systems for your corporate bottom line.
I'm not even going to get into how environmentally irresponsible this is.
Short sighted decision if ever there was one. Dumb, Dumb, Dumb.
