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.

Three Goshen elementary schools — Chandler, Chamberlain and West Goshen — are providing free meals to all students during the school year as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Eligibility Provision of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. Nearly 80 percent of students at Chandler, 89 percent of students at Chamberlain and 78 percent of students at West Goshen already qualify for free or reduced-price lunches based on their family income. How do you feel about the new lunch program?
