A Huntsville man is frustrated with the city's recycling service, saying his trash is often missed by the pick-up crews.
Dario Gonzalez, a resident in west Huntsville told WAAY 31 that he's complained to the city several times in the past six months about his recycling service. The problem is simple: crerws fail to pick up his recycling -- even though his family has an assigned pick-up day.
"They forgot. It was too early. Their trucks are messed up in some way or another," said Gonzalez.
Those are just some of the excuses Gonzalez said he has recieved from the city.
"We leave the recycling out on the curb. We live on a very busy and windy street, and it just blows out on to Triana," he said.
Since the trash contiously blows away, Gonzalez said he thinks it's discouraging his neighbors to make an effort to recycle.
"People are a little bit less likely to recycle if city services aren't provided," he added.
WAAY 31 reached out to the city's spokesperson along with the public works director to find out what's going on with the recycling service, but have not yet received a response.
