“It just stinks, you
know," said Daryl Williams, who has lived at the complex
Williams said conditions all around the property are
deteriorating, but the immediate problem is the piles of
garbage and waste.
“I think it’s been six weeks since we had any trash pick-up
out here and I don’t know when it’s going to come," Williams
he door of the property management office was unlocked, but
no one was inside when News4Jax went to ask questions.
Neighbors directed us to Michael Moore, president of their
tenants’ association. Reached by phone, Moore said the
garbage service told him their trucks are broken but refused
to comment further.
Residents say trash the dumpers in the complex
haven't been emptied for weeks.
A representative of Advance Disposal, the garbage
service, told News4Jax the complex was behind on its bill and released this
statement late Wednesday:
“The property has been
on ‘stop service’ since January 17, 2020, as a result of an
overdue balance owed. We have been in contact with the
property owners/management company and a payment was made
today and service will resume tomorrow. The property has
four dumpsters that we service two times per week, so it
will take a little while for us to get completely caught up,
but we will get it done. We sincerely appreciate our
customers’ business and apologize for the inconvenience this
has caused for the residents at this property.”
Those who live at the condos just hope the issues are
resolved and that someone picks up their garbage soon.
