Video Captures Mail Carrier Running Over Trash Bins

LEXINGTON, KY (Lex 18) - A 12 second video of a postal worker is providing a lot of answers for some Lexington homeowners wondering why their trash cans are sometimes tipped over in the street.  

In west Lexington, off Stallion Run, trash day doesn't always go as smoothly as Sivi Wills would like. 

"I came in today and saw that my trash can was blown over and thought maybe it was the wind," She said. 

Face down and wheels up, her herbie is rarely on the curb. 

"Not only my trash can, I've seen others in the cul de sac," Wills said.

On Thursday, thanks to one neighbor, Wills and many others believed they had an answer. It's not the weather or sanitation workers. Video caught by a neighbor showed the mail carrier driving through the bins.

"He just clearly pushed my trash can over and left it laying," Wills said. "It's frustrating to know that he would do that."

Other neighbors said they've seen the USPS postal worker do this before, just never caught it on camera. 

They said it happens when the bins are in the street, and not on the curb, which is what the city of Lexington requires

"I think it's wrong that he'd be doing something like that," said Lyman Martin. "If he's going to deliver the mail, he should be doing the right thing with nobody around."

Though the USPS asks homeowners to never block mailboxes, a spokesperson released this statement: 

"We are currently reviewing the video to gather additional details about this incident.  This is clearly unacceptable behavior that does not reflect the efforts of the thousands of professional, dedicated carriers in our workforce.  Be assured this incident is being fully investigated and the Postal Service will take whatever action is appropriate."
