Overflowing trash bin on Best Street in Dartmouth. 

What's Wrong?: Overflowing trash bin on Best Street in Dartmouth.

Who's Responsible?: Waste Management, 468-9111.

Remarks: Remarks: A reader tells us the bin has been sitting unemptied and apparently abandoned for more than five months. The bin can’t hold another mattress or computer, leaving them to be disposed of on the ground. Or perhaps the mattress and computer didn’t qualify as “international waste only,” whatever that means. A telephone dispatcher at Waste Management says she remembers receiving a phone call on the matter a few weeks ago, and she’ll have someone get back to us. But what’s the hurry, eh? It’s only Dartmouth. ---David Olsen
