Replacement workers run routes for Allied Waste

Posted: Updated:

NILES, Ohio - Allied Waste says it has replacement workers running routes now and through the weekend, to pick up trash.

Trash cans and bags were waiting curbside today in Niles and customers are concerned about their service.

Piles and cans sat waiting for pick-up along Mason Street Southeast on Friday.

Homeowners nearby are still scratching their heads, left guessing when their unwanted items would be taken away.

Some folks took matters into their own hands and dropped off their recyclables at a drop off spot in Austintown.

Allied Waste says it has replacement workers running routes across its coverage area, which also includes Liberty Township, Cortland, Girard, Lordstown, Campbell and Struthers.

However, the Mahoning County Green Team said recycling impact will be felt across the entire county for curbside service.

Allied Waste hopes to handle the backlog by the end of the weekend.

In Austintown, fewer than ten Teamsters members were picketing outside the Allied Facility on Thacher Lane.

It's the second day they joined the picket line to support the Sanitation workers who are on strike.

The workers here on strike tell 21 News they plan to picket this company through the weekend. They don't see an end to this strike anywhere in sight.

The next meeting between the company and the union is planned for next month.

"We currently have a session scheduled for April 9. We as a company are open to meet at any time. You know, I've made attempts to the local business agents that have gone unsuccessful," says Douglas Dunn, Allied Waste Services general manager.

With days of waiting gone by, neighbors in Niles say they just want it cleaned up.

"Least it's cool and it ain't going to start smelling. But if it's hot weather, it's going to start stinking. We're going to have trash going all over the road and cats in it and everything else," says Gary Elser of Niles.

Allied Waste Services says it's replacement workers will stay in place until the strike is over.
