Bulk Trash Left Out Too Long
Someone on my street in Shaw has left a mattress out front (first on their lawn, now on the sidewalk leaning against their stone wall) a mattress for at least 3 weeks now. I submitted an online request to 311 with the address of this home requesting immediate removal of this mattress and also requesting that, if they don’t remove it, to fine the residence until it has been disposed of. The street I live on is very nice, with mostly owner-occupied row houses and well cared for residences with landscaped front yards. It’s not the type of street that I’ve ever seen bulk trash items left about. I was pretty embarassed walking visiting family members to see my home only to have to pass by a home with a mattress thrown haphazardly over the bushes of this person’s home. Is there a better way to contact the city for this other than 311? Also, for anyone suggesting I knock on the door myself–I get home very late and don’t really want a confrontation if the person isn’t nice about it. I’d rather have the city deal with it than risk pissing off a shitty neighbor.
