Another problem of waste piling up rue Mireille Sorgue, in Toulouse. Distraught as always, the inhabitants no longer know what to do to aspire to cleanliness.
At number 12 rue Mireille Sorgue, in Lafourguette, south of Toulouse, Pierre and Huguette Dubourg did not take off. “These four containers will be overflowing in front of the gate of our residence for almost a month. It’s really disgusting, ”the couple explains. There is a mix of all kinds of waste thrown on the ground: mattresses, boxes, beer cans, toys, quilts, salad bowl, pieces of furniture… A real rubbish dump!
Some of these containers full to the brim stay open and end up spreading foul smells around the neighborhood. “Not to mention the animals that come to rummage in the bags. The other day, my cat even killed a rat in the garden, ”adds Jacques, a neighbor of the Dubourg couple.
“We don’t know what to do anymore”
“Let’s say that at the beginning, there were few orders, and this accumulates over the days”, specifies Huguette. This 74-year-old resident has nevertheless gone out of his way to remove this rubbish from the sidewalk. “But everyone is passing the buck, nobody wants to intervene. Two weeks ago, I called the hygiene service and nothing has changed. So, I contacted 222 222 several times. This time, the town hall called me back, telling me that rue Mireille Sorgue was private and that there was nothing she could do. An argument that has the gift of annoying Huguette. “It is not because the street is private that we have to live in dirt. And this especially since we pay taxes, ”she asserts.
Madame Dubourg also met the neighborhood mayor last Tuesday. “I told him that soon the rue Mireille Sorgue was going to be worse than Marseille. She replied that it was on track to be deprivatized ”, pursues the Toulousaine
In reality, the unsanitary problem would be generated by ADL Immobilier, the property manager who manages the building opposite. “He no longer fits the containers into their garbage room. Suddenly, anyone comes to drop their waste there, inside and next to it. If the bins had returned, we would not have this problem, ”adds the retiree.
There too, she contacted ADL Immobilier. “And you know, what the secretary replied: Goodbye and happy new year. They really make fun of us, ”protests in turn Pierre, her 82-year-old husband. The Dubourg couple can’t take it anymore. “We don’t know what to do anymore,” they conclude.
Contacted, the district mayor has, for the time being, not wished to follow up.
