“I oversee the contracts in maintenance. It’s my responsibility,” said Rich Hart, assistant superintendent of MBTA station support services.
Hart said he oversees grounds clean-up.
The pile, which included furniture pieces, debris and token collection boxes, was inexplicably dumped by a sidewalk outside the Red Line station in Davis Square. “I think this is where they pick it up from; those are from the toll trash. I don’t know what they’re doing here,” said Brian Holland, an MBTA inspector.
Construction debris is not picked up along with regular trash, Holland said. It must be from when they did re-did the station and added the new equipment, he said.
“I will have to check with Porter Square to see,” Holland said. The city does not pick up the MBTA trash. MBTA has its own contractors who may have left the trash behind for a later pick-up, he said.
Hart, an MBTA employee for six years, said he would work on getting the trash removed right away.
