FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO):  As the City of Fort Wayne is set to transition from Red River Waste Solutions to GFL Environmental by weeks’ end, City Councilman Russ Jehl is calling for city residents to get a refund after so many Red River missed pickups. According to our partnes in news at ABC21, Jehl is calling for the city of Fort Wayne to not pay Red River the full amount of their bill for the last month of service. He wants the city to take the leftover money and issue a refund to customers. His resolution calls for the city law department to make the final call as to how much Red River should be paid. Jehl wants the city to pay roughly half of the normal amount. He argues that a missed pickup is the same as no service at all. Jehl feels that now is the perfect time to demand, in his words, “justice” from Red River.

I’ve been a resident on Fort Wayne’s far southwest side for over 4 decades. Kruge Drive to be specific. I would like give a huge shout out to the guy who works for Red River who has picked up the garbage on my street. He has always been excellent, only a few times has he been a day late. Considering Covid the past couple years, I can live with it. He has a near perfect track record. And he told me last week that he has been hired by the new company. I hope he keeps the same route. He is awesome. Anyway, just want to say how much I appreciate him. He’s a good guy!!
