Trash still not being picked up from some Toronto locations

The city worker strike may be over in Toronto but some in the city have yet to see their garbage picked up. The building at 150 Femanagh Avenue has not had service for two weeks.
People along Roncevalles at Femanagh Avenue have not had their garbage picked up for two weeks due to the construction in the area, reports CP24. They appear to be the only ones along the street though dealing with that problem.
Roncevalles is undergoing major construction which is making it difficult for the garbage trucks to get to the bins claims Gord Perks, the local city councilor.
CP24 reports indicate there is a smell lingering in the area, however residents I spoke with were unaware of any problem. There is heavy construction along Roncevilles, but that has not made a difference with their garbage pickup for any other location.
Sophia Okorn lives on Femanagh Avenue within a block of 150 Femanagh Avenue. She said she was not aware of the problem and her trash pick-up has not been affected because of the construction.
"I haven't smelled anything but I have sinus problems," Ms. Okorn said.
Joel Eves lives in the same area and also has not had any problem with trash pick-up.
"I was not aware of any problems but I believe that they put their trash out back at 150."
Mr. Eves also said he has not smelled anything at the location and he often walks past the address on his way around the area.
