E. St. Louis Trash Piling Up Say Residents

Residents in East St. Louis are complaining about lots of garbage piling up.

"We have leaders who don't understand that residents must pay trash pick-up bills. Every three months, $50.95. If some people would stop smoking or going to the liquor store, they could afford trash pickup. On our streets we have about 100 houses; 45 trash cans were out this week, the rest weren't. So guess what, where is the garbage going? On empty lots, alleys, in wooded areas? The City Council needs to pass a motion that every residence has to have trash pickup."

St. Louis County is not the only municipalaity having trash problems.
