10News: University City residents concerned about trash at recycling bins


University City residents woke up the day after Christmas to piles of trash overflowing from recycle bins at the beloved Standley Community Park.

As reported by Jonathan Horn ABC 10 News:

But they say this is not just a post-holiday one-off.

The three bins are at the entrance to the park, on Governor Drive. Longtime resident Barry Bernstein says they overflow at least three times a week.

Bernstein said the street-side location also makes an easy invitation for people to dump off their junk. He’s seen stoves and couches among the recyclables.
