Trash still piling up behind Save-A-Lot in Springfield


Not much has changed since 22News shot video of trash piling up behind a Springfield supermarket last month.

There is a ravine behind the Save-A-Lot supermarket.

If anything, the situation has gotten worse.

There are a lot of large items dumped including furniture, children’s outdoor toys and assorted trash.

It’s frustrating for the property owners.

“It costs us money to clean it up,” said Mark Melikian. “It’s aggravating. You try to keep a property clean and keep it neat for the tenants and the customers coming through. It just looks bad.”

22News will continue to monitor this situation, and cover this story, and find out who’s making the mess.
