This was expected as a result of Leominster tightening up the trash guidelines. With public landfills being closed every week, people are limited as to where they can dump trash.

I have noticed a serious decrease in illegal dumping in the city of fitchburg. What these officials need to do is start to fine home owners in the city for having trashy unkept property to the extent that the trash blows onto everyone elses property. The residents of Fitchburg have been noticably neater as they have been cleaning the gutters and sidewalks more than before.
What we deal with in the college area is absentee landlords who allow these students to liter the streets like it was a unkept ghetto!!
I would like to ask this sanitary inspector; Why don't you fine these landlords who collect rents and leave their property unkept? I will give you a lead on one such landlord; He owns Campus pizza, he can't be hard to find! He owns the house on the corner where the trash blows around three days before pickup! Apparantly he doesn't want to spend three hundred from the rents to purchase a small trash storage shed from home depot or lowes!
Why is the sanitary inspector looking in dumpsters? This is obviously trash from peoples cars ect. What is wrong with disposing trash in a public dumpster? What he needs to do is put a $100 camera from best buy on a tree in a common place that people illegally dump! When they catch the culprit then jam them with a fine that equals ten times the dump rate! And make them pick it up!

Don't tell me that this is a cop! From JRs? Where the patrons/cops and friends drive on the opposite side of the roadway and then arrogantly and brazingly leave their car half way in the driving lane facing the wrong way?
The cops seem to be the arrogant corrupt trash in this town!! Eliminate the entire Fitchburg police force and you will see this town advance; until then Fitchburg will be a complete dump!There are not many towns where the cops are more corrupt than the criminals; to name a few; Fitchburg,Lowell and Boston!

thats what happens when you force trash removal TAXES down peoples throat, at least when schitzburg mayor don g imposes this trash tax on me i won't have far to go to dump what i dont want to pay for.
If we eleminate the entire Fitchburg police department we may see an adequate effort to change things; I wouldn't blame the mayor when the corrupt criminals can be found at JRs.
You need look no further than JRs!

This should be the focus of the sanitary officer! You need to get the license plate number next time! Don't be surprised if it ends up bei ng either a FPD member, city councilman or a friend or relative of a connected city employee!
This sanatary officer disregards the college area where landlords allow trash to blow freely around our streets! These landlords are absentee and usually are connected to a city official!
Instead of checking trash recepticles they need to check these dumping spots like you mentioned! We need to demand that these city officials do their job! Enact fines for these dumpers!

sounds like another disaster waiting to happen... I foresee a large amount trash piling up all over the city. At least it will "cut down on cost"... right

Mazzarela doubted that Leominster residents are a major contributor to illegal trash dumping in Fitchburg.

If we can track it to you it is yours. Dirty up your own space not ours. I am tired of doing city clean ups and only having a few people volunteer to help. I think that we should make the criminals that are arrested do community time and do a chain gang clean up like they do in arizona. http://www.wsws.org/articles/2003/nov2003/gan...

Now that works...!!!

The violators of the illegal dumping should do chain gang pickup of Fitchburg! This is a right choice and one the town officials can enact immediately! This is what our elected officials are suppose to be doing!
I know that some of the trash comes from Gardner residents! These offenders need to be made to clean the area! I told Mayor Wong that the college kids who need to get arrested for disturbing the peace,breaking bottles and causing emergency services to respond to their out of control bomb firers and injured fighters at their parties need to be put on this chain gang also!
When there are no consequences behaviors will not change!

This seems to be a current issue concerning the new trash fees. Leominster and Gardner residents dumping trash in Fitchburg,huh? Now Fitchburg residents will be joining in on the effort.

Stamos, can you help find the posts concerning all the direct threats to Mr. Lynch and darn Tooten?

I believe one person even stated, "when we find you tooten we are going to do you like we did Lynch"!!!!

Stamos, take the challenge!

WTF Stamos! The candidate addressed you a year and a half ago on this topic, and you're responding now?

It's the Stockholm Syndrome, Stamos. Too bad. He captured your mind and life years ago, and now you're just as bad as the kidnapper himself. Just the flip side of the same dirty cheap coin.
