One outraged citizen pounds out a 311 complaint about conditions in the North End today:
The North End is a disgrace today and a clear example of how we don't have good representation! Besides the residents living in filth I am sure the tourists will appreciate how we our forced to live. Wake up and figure it out City Hall. Next trash day is Monday! DISGUSTED in the North End!!
A calmer, if still disgusted, citizen adds:
Guys please if there's anyway to send a trash truck through tomorrow at the north end is a mess every single street has a multitude of trash bags everywhere. Obviously no one knew that there is no trash pick up today people think that you're just gonna come tomorrow and between the rats and the homeless people picking through in this neighborhood is a disaster. Please please please come pick it up and help us
Another peeved North End citizen, suggests the city either do a better job of alerting North Enders not to put their trash out on, you know, a well known national holiday, or just pick up the trash on Friday rather than waiting until Monday.
Once again the entire neighborhood did not get the memo that trash would not be picked up on Thanksgiving day. And instead of giving us a delay day trash will now be sitting on the street until Monday morning. I hope you will send trucks out tomorrow morning to pick up all of the residential trash. I don't know why you haven't figured out the north and needs a one day delay on Thanksgiving.
