Trash blowing from trucks hauling trash from the Edmond Transfer Station continues to upset Edmond resident Ernie Schultz. The owners and contractors promise they are working on the problem.

In the meantime, Pete Schultze said, they are inspecting each load and making repairs on the tarps when needed on the equipment owned by First Tee-Stafford trucking.

“They have a full understanding of our expectation that all loads must be secured to prevent leakage,” said Clay Coldiron, who runs the daily operations of ETS Enterprises.

“We are looking forward to working with the new hauler and their improved equipment,” Pete Schultze said.

Edmond trash from the transfer station is taken to Waste Management's East Oak Landfill at NE 23 and Sooner Road in Oklahoma City.

“We have a strong commitment that the problem is going to be solved,” Coldiron said. “MBI has a much better tarping system to keep the trash contained.”

Ernie Schultz's trip home from downtown on Friday dimmed his hopes there will be a solution.

“I hope the promises come to fruition and the problem is solved,” said Ernie Schultz. “I am skeptical and hopeful.”
