Neighborhood Overjoyed by Sunriver's Waste Pickup: Neighbors High-five!
Topic: Sunriver Waste Spotlight

How long will the lot remain clean is up to Sunriver also known as Patriots Homes or Mark One or Mark I. We still see these pallets of broken materials on the lot. They are the vestiges of the rodent refuge.

Living and breathing on the Bluffs: Sunriver's Construction Waste Piles Up For Months in one of Fresno's Top Residential Areas
Topic: Sunriver Waste Spotlight

Help, oh help! Residents of district 2 which Brian Calhoun represents, are fed up with trash from Sunriver builders. Now you may see why people are afraid of investing in Fresno. Sunriver built and sold homes to homeowners who find it impossible to breathe under the mountain of trash left to stink for months next door. If a builder can get away with leaving so much waste on its vacant lot in a top residential area, what can it not do in poor residential areas on Kings Canyon and elswhere? Yet, those who are elected to represent us keep their mouth shut. What are we led to believe? Nobody can tell the owners of this company to clean its act because it may have made huge campaign contributions in the past? There must be some balance. If the company made contributions to local politicians, that money benefitted one person or a few people during the campaign. Yet, a whole neighborhood has to live with trash. We are just trying to speculate here. Can there be any reasons for such licences? We have no evidence that Sunriver contributed money to any politicians in District 2 or elswhere in Fresno. The people's needs must be served first. We are at a loss for words. How can they get away with subjecting children and parents to unsafe living conditions?

These are the cries of desperation. We are crying in the desert. Indifference is the only friend. We are lonely and weak. We can not do much to make this company accountable. Yet, We are surrounded by people who need our votes and contributions. For God's sake, we pay taxes just like anybody else does. How come there is nobody who is out there to help us? When we call the phone numbers, we leave messages to voicemail. Nobody solves anything. We wonder whether paychecks are collected. Where are all those absenteists?

More fresh but stinking waste will follow soon.

One of the dirt piles is picked up
Topic: Sunriver Waste Spotlight

One of the piles of dirt hiding the construction waste in the back was picked up yesterday. Another huge pile of dirt and broken materials is still there. The WM trailer is full now. It has been this way for quite a few weeks now. With the wind, we had debris being flown all over the yard. Fat rats and mice find easy habitat in the plastic, sheetrock, cement, cardboard, board and scrap-metal-laden waste that is strewn all over the lot. Some of this waste has been there since September 2005.

In the meantime, fat rats, mice and other pests are taking over the neighborhood. They can be seen running from the piles of bricks that are in the front of the lot. They also come from the trash near the cement wall in the back.
