Returned Mail/Notice Concerns?:

Stated Reason for Appeal (if given): I am living by myself in a side-by-side duplex where half of the house has been “unoccupied” for over three years and will remain unoccupied for at least another year, maybe longer.   The “garbage cart size” card I returned to the City of Saint Paul before June 1st, 2018 was ignored.  On it I had selected “one” small cart for my property.  The “Unoccupied Dwelling Registration Form” I completed in November of 2018 has also been ignored.   After two medium dumpsters were placed on my property I promptly contacted Ramsey County to inform them of the mistake and asked them to downsize my property to the “one cart” I selected.   This request was answered only with me being told there was nothing that could be done.  I was sent on a runaround lasting several months, and while late charges were being added to my bill, the haulers on my street weren't even picking up my garbage on a regular basis.  "Advanced Disposal" was not prepared for the new business and changes to their routes...

Staff Comments: This was unresolved from the dispute garbage form. Need to hear back from ADS. DC sent email to CS 5/3. CS to follow up with PO.
