The issue in GetHuman1307362's own words
Hi there, I am located at *** Mulberry Street, Elkton, TN, *****. Immediately next door to me is an electrical hardware business with one of your dumpsters, nearly sitting on my property. The company has so much extra waste, that does not go into the dumpster (tree limbs, pallets, etc.) that the dumpster is inches from sitting in the street. It is clear the driver has no other choice of where to place it with the waste in the way. The dumpster entirely blocks my view to pull out of my driveway, and is technically sitting on county property (I have the plats for the properties). The property line is about *ft behind the light-post shown in the images I have, placing the dumpster several feet away from where it should be. This is quite dangerous for us, and could easily be solved by the company clearing the area, allowing the driver to lay the dumpster in a safer location, as well as onto the business property. I have approached them about this issue to no avail. Unfortunately this is not the only issue. There is no trash pick-up in our town, it is a small area. Therefore, the business allows the entire area to throw their waste into the dumpster as well. This would generally not be an issue, except for the dumpster becomes overflowed very quickly, putting trash into the street as well as my lawn every single week. From my previous business experience, this should not be allowed although I am not trying to irritate the entire neighborhood. There is an option for us all to have trash pick-up although it has simply not been requested. This dumpster is not the area's only option. The driver runs at apprx. *:**am Tuesday mornings and is nearly empty as of right now. If images are needed of the dumpster overflowing, just give me a few days. I have had an altercation with the business owner's stepfather, who is remodeling his home, and he dumps all of his building material waste into the dumpster as well. It overflows the container immediately. I approached him about the issue with a response far too negative to list here. He basically stated to mind my own d***n business and "Do you know who I am?". The situation escalated from there. I care not who he is, he is a waste of my time to deal with any further. Now the people of the business are quite rude to me and my family, and there has been trash thrown directly into my lawn on a near daily basis. I recently paid cash for this home, and I am not going anywhere. I would like for this not to be a long-term issue. I will handle the trash in my yard on my own, I will be setting up HD cameras very soon, pointed in the proper directions. I am asking, please, could you contact the business and have them clear the area properly so the driver may return the dumpster to it's proper location, on their own property, keeping trash out of my yard, and un-blocking my clear view of the street. I greatly appreciate your help, and hope that this does not ruin anyone's day. Thank You, Hayden Sims
