Dedham Residents Complain About Amazon Delivery Drivers' Alleged Litter

DEDHAM, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Residents who live near the Amazon warehouse in Dedham have been complaining in social media posts that the company's delivery drivers are being reckless with their driving—and with their trash.

Dedham resident Ariel Leitao lives in a neighborhood off Sprague Street.

"[I] personally experienced a driver blowing past me, through oncoming traffic, through the stop sign," Leitao said. She's not the only person who says they've had a bad run-in with an Amazon driver.

Bob, who lives nearby, said drivers go the wrong way down his one-way street.

"[The driver] came in the wrong way, and I pulled up next to him and he just gave me the finger," Bob said.

As far as trash thrown on the ground, Leitao said she has seen urine-filled bottles on the side of the road.

"[They] looked to be urine," Leitao said. "I haven't personally seen specifically the Amazon drivers doing it but it is their property by where the drivers come in so I don't think it's a leap to make that assumption."

Connie, who also lives in the area, said she's not convinced it's the drivers.

"They deliver packages all the time," Connie said. "Never, ever I have seen, anybody littering here in the neighborhood. Nothing, absolutely nothing."

It's still hard to determine who is responsible for the trash since there are many truckers who drive on Sprague Street.

"Safety is our number one priority," an Amazon spokesperson told WBZ NewsRadio. "We are committed to being a good neighbor in the communities we serve. We will share this feedback directly with our team and will continue to work closely with the community when concerns are raised."
