Topekans demand cleanup from Union Pacific

TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – It was a story we brought to you a few weeks ago. Neighbors in a north Topeka community demanded change alongside a railroad. Now, the Topeka community is coming together to cleanup the debris.

It is located near NW Tyler St. & NW Morse St.

City councilwoman Sandra Clear said, “It’s trash!”

People living nearby said they want it gone.

A neighbor, Jamahl Fitzgerald said, “If you look at it like this, this stuff is piled up. It needs to be evacuated.”

He said, “It’s piled up and dumped over here, but who actually put it over here you know?”

Clear said it’s a mess that has been this way for at least five years.

We went looking for answers on who is responsible for the mess and responsible for cleaning it up.
