OKLAHOMA CITY - A metro man claims he caught on camera what appeared to be Waste Management workers urinating and defecating in a public place on the clock in southwest Oklahoma City.
"It's barbaric, animalistic," said the owner of Flux Dance Hall, Michael Wise.
Wise said he put up surveillance cameras to keep an eye on his business.
Not once, but twice, he claims he captured Waste Management workers on surveillance video relieving themselves in an alley near S.W. 26th St. and Robinson.
On Aug. 13 at 6:43 a.m., the video shows a work truck pull in and an employee get out carrying toilet paper.
The employee can then be seen squatting between two dumpsters.
"Then he pulled his pants up, peeped in the dumpster to see if it needed to be emptied, got back in his truck and drove off," said Wise.
Two days later, another dump truck from the same company drives up.
Two men pick up the trash, then surveillance video shows one the workers appearing to urinate before moving on to the next stop.
"I think it's a terrible part on Waste Management because they can't even manage the own waste of their drivers," said Wise.
We did reach out to Waste Management representatives, who released the following statement:
"Although we have not been provided a copy of the video, we were notified via a phone call on August 18th which was a Saturday of this issue. This type of behavior is not expected from any of our employees. Our management team did address this issue with not only the three drivers involved, but all our drivers on Monday, August the 20th. Expected protocol and behavior was reviewed and retrained with all drivers in this district. We do expect all drivers to behave appropriately."
For Wise, he just wants his business to look nice, and to not have to worry about human feces and other waste right next door.
"Those people should be released from their positions," said Wise.
