Trenton Board of Education member Thomas Kinney complained to mayor and council members about trash from garbage trucks blowing into in his yard last Monday at the Trenton City Council meeting.
Kinney said he's found bricks, pieces of metal and various other pieces of trash in his yard--including 300 coffee creamers in one day.
"It is a nuisance, and I don't know what can be done," Kinney said. "It seems to be getting worse."
"I think it's just them (garbage haulers) flying through there and all the trash is flying into the street and it just gets in my yard," Kinney said. "It's just a pain to pick up everyday."
Kinney added he would like to see someone come out at the end of the day to clean any trash in the road.
Kinney brought photos of various pieces of trash he found in his yard near King Road and passed them out to mayor and council members.
Mayor Kyle stack said she and Trenton officials would contact the City of Riverview about the issue.
"We'll talk to the City of Riverview and see if there is something that can be done with their haulers," Stack said.
Trenton City Administrator Jim Wagner sent a letter regarding the issue to Riverview City Manager Dean Workman on Thursday. Wagner was unavailable for comment Monday afternoon.
Kinney said he and his son clean up pieces of trash found in his yard everyday. Before he cleans up the trash, Kinney said he often takes pictures for reference.
The landfill received a noncompliance for odor violation after an inspector from the Wayne County Department of Public Services responded to a complaint call from a Trenton resident in February.
Kinney said the smell from the landfill remains "atrocious." He said his daughter called the odor "sour smelling" early Monday morning of last week.
Patrick Cullen, acting director of the Land Resource Management Division for Wyane County, said he has not received complaints about trash.
He added the landfill is required to clean up any debris within 2500 feet of the landfill entrance in either direction.
The staff does pick up trash regularly," Cullen said. "Some of the issue is beyond the landfill's control. (For example) if you get a couple rouge garbage truck drivers.”
