CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - You know the old saying..."a sight for sore eyes"? In my latest See, Click, Fix investigation, it's more a case of a sight that will make your eyes sore.
It's not exactly clear what happened, but neighbors say when the residents moved out of their house on Wicked Oak Lane in west Charlotte more than four weeks ago, a huge pile of trash appeared on the sidewalk in front of the house.
No one has moved in since, and the trash hasn't moved either.
According to Mecklenburg County officials, the property here is owned by a company in Atlanta, and under local ordinances, that company is responsible for disposing of this trash.
Officials say a letter has been sent to the company notifying it of such, but there's been no response.
In the meantime, the trash just sits there.
But not any longer.
It's now been See, Click, FIXED.
When I learned about the problem and how long the trash had been sitting there, I contacted Mecklenburg County Solid Waste Management.
When I talked to Steve Hoffman and Mike Stillwell about the problem they didn't hesitate to take action.
Within three hours of my first phone call crews were out taking care of the mess and the trash was picked up.
Again, by ordinance, the folks with the county were not at all responsible for picking up that trash.
What they did was totally out of compassion for the folks in that neighborhood. They just wanted to help.
So chalk one up to the folks with Mecklenburg County Solid Waste Management for going out of the way to take care of the problem.
