A WOMAN has claimed garbage men refused to collect her rubbish because a petty neighbor won’t move her car – and now her rubbish is overflowing.
TikToker Dame Jette said garbage men had to walk around a building to a nearby parking lot to get her garbage.
Dame Jette – who regularly posts about her neighborhood disputes – accused the people who lived across the street from ignoring a parking ban on her street.
“I’ve lived here for a decade [and] I’ve never, ever had a problem with them not picking up my trash to this day,” she said.
“So I call her to find out why. They tell me it’s because people are parking on the street down there when they shouldn’t be, preventing the garbage truck from going around that corner right there,” she adds as you point the camera at the spot .
“And that they can’t pick up my garbage anymore as long as people park on the street down there.”
When she confronted her neighbors, she was attacked by her dog and told they would not be able to find a parking space there and that it was “your problem” to find out.
In a later update, she said her bins were finally emptied after garbage men found a back way into her street.
“They’re going to put up the no-parking signs again tomorrow anyway,” she said.
“So if they do, I’ll post another update then.”
Users quickly got involved in the dispute.
“I’m in Ohio, in the Southwest, and it’s illegal to park in front of a fire hydrant in most cities. You can call the city/police and they will issue a ticket or tow you,” one person wrote.
“Just call the fire department when the truck gets there,” suggested another.
“My garbage company calls the tow truck and keeps it going. People learned it very quickly. It’s not your problem to deal with,” wrote a third.
“This truck is such totally illegal parking,” pointed out another.
“My garbage truck will stand there and honk until the person comes out and moves.”
