Once is just random, twice is a pattern. I called the police about it, and they did nothing. I wasn't expecting them to show up and drag it off, that isn't their job. But I was expecting at least a report, and some information on how I can dump this thing. If I take it to the dumps or have it removed, it'll cost me. I've done the only thing I can with it, put a free sign on it, and hope someone wants it.
I don't know if someone dropped it off, or if it fell off the back of a vehicle. I'm asking that if people find a mattress on the street, please don't drag it on to private property. The owner will be responsible for it then, and have to pay to dump it ($15.00).
It's really bad that people are either dumping their hard to dispose of furniture on other peoples' property, or that you shouldn't do the right thing and clear junk off the street.
