Residents in the vicinity of Spring, Summer and Winter streets Lewiston are indignant at what appears to them to be negligence on the part of the street department in collecting ashes and other waste in that section of the city. The regular day for collecting said waste is Saturday, and last week and at several other times during the winter, the department has failed to collect the waste on the regular day with the results that ash barrels and boxes filled with waste have been allowed to remain on the sidewalks over Sunday. So disgusted were some of the residents yesterday morning that they emptied their ash barrels in the street.
