MATTITUCK - Residents in the Town of Southold are crying foul as their trash piles up under the sweltering summer sun while the town and a trash carting company duke it out in court.
The Town of Southold requires all residents to put the garbage in special yellow trash bags before it can be picked up by a trash hauler and taken to the town's trash facility.
Carting company Go Green doesn't use the bags and says it does not utilize the town's trash facility for the garbage it collects, thus shouldn?t be required to use the yellow bags.
The town has issued an injunction against the trash company, preventing it from picking up trash, leaving residents who pay for Go Green's services with trash piling up.
The town and trash company have a court hearing on Thursday and Go Green says it hopes to have the injunction lifted before the court date.
