Mattresses and Door taken by BFI truck

The BFI truck came down the lane this afternoon. They picked up the mattresses at the dumpster next to mine. They were even nice enough to take the door out of my dumpster so I can have my garbage picked up next garbage day. That was sure nice. Maybe it depends on the specific person working in the garbage truck whether they will take more items than are listed specifically on their "ticket". Anyway, my door has been picked up.
The mattresses were picked up from the neighbours dumpster, but the dumpster is almost full, and now there is garbage on the ground beside the dumpster. Maybe it was under the mattresses.
I went for my walk down the back lanes. More mattresses have been dumped on top of the already existing ones from a few days ago. On Aug 25 there were two couches, a door and two mattresses at this dumpster. Now there are an additional three mattresses.
And I found a few couches in the alley on the other side of me. They are everywhere. I bet there is not a back lane in the North End without a couch or mattress. Do the residents of the North End have that much money? Are they replacing their bedroom furniture monthly? I wonder where these mattresses are actually coming from.

When I was talking to the Mayor this morning, he asked me if I like the dumpsters. He asked if I would like them removed and go back to putting my own garbage out like the rest of the city. He said everyone should have the same service. I told him of course I want to be able to put my garbage out on garbage day and have it taken away. Of course I want to get rid of the dumpsters. Hmmm. I didn't know it would be that simple. Sam Katz asked little ol' me if I want to get rid of the dumpsters. The answer is YES.


  1. I have auto bins in my area, I have called in past years to have large items picked up the city responded rather quickly. This year I called for a tv pickup, someone took circuits out of it, and 2 days later the tv was in the autobin. I called about a large tree stump that was moved about 2 times onto the middle of the backlane. According to staff at 311 it does not qualify for pickup. It eventually was thrown in the autobin. I notice renovators are careless, they leave nails and screws on the ground. I have had 2 tire repairs this year and 3 in years before. I am beginning to dislike the autobins, neighbors are lazy or just don't care.

  2. Depending on the materials dumped into the dumpster, the city may charge extra in order to properly get rid of the waste. Depending on your needs, you can choose between one of our four dumpster rentals.
