Trashy Street Reportedly Has West County Residents Upset

Residents in a West County neighborhood are unhappy with how their trash hauler is leaving their streets, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the trustees of Dietrich Place Homeowners Association are complaining that their trash hauler is making a mess of their streets.  

The subdivision is in unincorporated St. Louis County, right next to Manchester and Town and Country. 

According to the Post, the homeowners association's president wrote to St. Louis County Councilwoman Colleen Wasinger, R-Town and Country, about the issue. 

The letter reportedly addressed the trucks used by IESI, the company providing trash service on the street, stating that the trucks drip oil and grease onto the street and frequently drop trash from the trucks as well. The neighborhood wants St. Louis County to replace IESI with a different trash service or allow the homeowners association to negotiate for a new service, according to the article. 

The letter is expected to be considered at Tuesday's St. Louis County Council meeting, the Post reports.

SAME HERE! The streets of Arbor Bluffs are being "trashed" by IESI's oil drippings, too! I used to go out and spray the puddles (w/laundry stain remover) left in front of our house, but I've gotten tired of doing that, as it now happens every time...

I wonder how many others are having this problem. I thought trash cans all over the street was bad, but damaging streets??????
