Forgotten filth piling behind Lambert Houses

THE BRONX - Trash is piling up again at the Lambert Houses in West Farms.

Residents say they complained about the trash weeks ago and much of it was taken away. News 12 spoke to Phipps Management Company earlier about the trash troubles, and the company previously said a broken compactor made picking up trash difficult.

Residents say the garbage is making the area dangerous for children. Many want the trash removed as soon as possible. The management company said it is currently unaware of any trash problem.

Residents relieved garbage is finally hauled away
