Trashy people dumped two queen size mattresses on my sidewalk, what can I do to get rid of them?

My husband, son and I had just gotten back from grocery shopping and we saw some queen dirty mattresses thrown on our sidewalk and wood too, we called to the darn solid waste and they say they don't pick that up. What can I do to get rid of it? The city said for us to dump it but we don't have a truck.

  • Maybe call the police to report it as vandalism. Perhaps they can do something about it.

  • yeah, call the cops..they can't expect you to take care of getting rid of it..its not your property and it sit in the road forever..i'd kick it in the road and say it may cause and accident.
