Edenwald residents ticketed after sanitation leaves trash behind

Some Edenwald residents say they are getting ticketed because the Department of Sanitation doesn't pick up trash when it?s supposed to.

Residents say they were fined $100 for leaving their trash out on Sunday. They claim the bags were there because a garbage truck never came by on Saturday, which is their scheduled trash pickup day.

When News 12 The Bronx contacted the sanitation department, a truck was sent over to pick up the garbage. The department claims it is looking into why residents were ticketed despite the late trash pickup.
