BUNCOMBE COUNTY, N.C. – A North Carolina woman is giving a local trash collection company an ultimatum: either pick up the trash, or she’ll take it to them.

Debra Maddox told WLOS that she’s fed up with Waste Pro not collecting her garbage, so on Friday she dumped it at the company’s front door.

The Buncombe County woman is one of many residents who’ve complained about the company’s service in recent weeks. She says she will continue her protest each week until her trash gets picked up.

“Well it gets rid of my trash,” Maddox said. “I don’t know what else to do with my trash and if they are not picking up other people’s trash, I would suggest they do the same. If they won’t take your trash and you are paying for that service, bring it to them.”
