Trumbull County residents await trash pick up

Posted: Updated:

TRUMBULL COUNTY - Some curbs in towns including Girard and Niles are littered with cans and bags just waiting to be taken away.

Those living in this Niles neighborhood took their cans to the curb Sunday night and .... It's still sitting there.

"If they don't pick the trash up, I don't think we should have to pay our monthly bill for the weeks that they don't pick it up," said Ryan Stan of Niles.

Some garbage cans are passed their tipping point, a lot like their owners.

"They've been coming you know like three days late. This is the second time it happened and I know the person that lives behind us isn't really happy," said Niles resident Tim Mangino.

An Allied Waste company official says delays are directly linked to not having enough replacement workers.

"We're trying to make an impact where we can, it's just limited resources and just drivers unfamiliar with the routing just taking a little bit longer for them to safely get through it," said Douglas Dunn, General Manager of Allied Waste Republic Services in Youngstown.

Recyclables are taking a back seat. 21 News caught some customers unloading their recycleables in Austintown this afternoon.

The Green Team is asking everyone to hold onto their recycle bins and put them out on their next scheduled pick up date.

No end is in sight for the fight said to be centered around a contract dispute.

More than 100 workers are on the picket line in the Valley supporting those on strike at the Carbon Limestone Landfill. Even more are supporting their fight across the state and county.

Allied and the Teamsters are set for another round of talks April 23.
