ERIE, Pa. (AP) - The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection is suing a trash hauler that had its license revoked in December because two of its trucks and containers are still filled with stinky garbage.

Angelo Bizzarro, the president of Lake Shore Disposal Systems, tells the Erie Times-News (https://bit.ly/1CdVrVh ) that he’s shut down his business as required, but hasn’t been able to remove the reeking garbage because the containers are frozen and filled with wood products.

Bizzarro says he’ll remove the garbage “as soon as the weather breaks” because “you can’t get the garbage out.”

DEP revoked the company’s license in December after complaints about odors, a truck with a leaking load compartment, and other violations.

But it says the trucks and containers were still full in three inspections since Dec. 29.
