A peeved citizen files a 311 complaint about an incident on Wallingford Road in Brighton yesterday evening:
Some one drove down the street and dumped a box spring on the sidewalk. I said he that’s not cool. They said f’ you and f’ mayor Wu and charging for box springs to be removed. So someone can dump a bed or box spring and the sidewalk neighbor gets charged?!? Wow
The city marked the complaint closed this morning, after a crew picked up the offending mattress.
Drive-by mattressing in West Roxbury.
Ed. note: As is par for the course for Wu haters, the mattress dumper got his facts wrong. It was the state, not the city, that banned putting mattresses and box springs out in the trash. The city will collect them for free, for recycling, instead of incineration, but you have to schedule that now, by calling or visiting 311, but that is perhaps too much effort for some people.
