Frustration piles up after trash hauler closes


Tippecanoe employees told Lafayette television station WLFI that they were told to go home after they showed up for work last week.

The employee, who said company officials have been communicating with employees exclusively via email and text over the past couple months, said employees came in for work Thursday. And found the trucks weren't safe to drive. The company told employees to go home and that they'd be notified when the trucks were repaired.

Markiewicz said he paid Tippecanoe in advance for three months of service in December and said he's filed a complaint with the Indiana Attorney General's office.

Anyone who wants to report problems to the attorney general's office can go online to http://www.in.gov/attorneygeneral/2434.htm to file a complaint. Waste Management can be reached at www.wm.com or 800-443-5646, and Republic can be contacted at www.republicservices.com or at 765-474-7997.
