Anyone else have problems with city garbage, we pay for garbage pickup but streets and sanitation don’t want to pick up garbage or anything that gets thrown out, onl good to write tickets and turn neighbors against each other

    I’ve never had a problem, the truck crew that comes by does a great job week after week . I don’t understand the tickets unless there is bulk furniture or piles of trash that over flow the trash bins week after week . The truck crews work in Chicago winters and show up in any weather. What is the violation on the tickets? Have you called your alderman? Do you have a block club ? Get a few neighbors together and address the issue head on , find out exactly what the violations are written for and correct them .

    We have lots of problems with garbage pickup. 38th Ward but they're on a different grid now and not by Ward. We also are not picked up by City crews. Not sure if it's Waste Management or Republic. They leave the carts all over the alley. The carts are left blocking garages. I can't get my car into or out of the garage sometimes. I'm handicapped so it's a problem to move them. Really sloppy. And when I complain, it gets worse.
