  • He said his name is Cleveland, like the city and Joe (L.J.) is always with him. What wonderful people! I enjoy knowing Cleveland and Joe. I was late getting my garbage can out to the street so I rushed outside with my robe flopping. Cleveland had already come to the open garage and rolled my trash can out to his truck. What a wonderful man. And Joe is right there, too, picking up mounds of yard trash generated by my neighbors and me. Another friend, Linda, said Cleveland and Joe provide wonderful service for her, too. Thank you, Cleveland and Joe. You take such good care of our town of McIntosh.
