DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ga. - Advanced Disposal promised to remove blue ink that has been on a Douglasville resident’s driveway and street for more than a month after Channel 2 Action News’ intervened.

"She's tried to get people out to do something,” said resident George Bush. “They keep telling us, ‘We're gonna, we're gonna, we're gonna,' and nothing ever happens."

The ink runs down Woodcrest Court to the Bush’s home which recently got a new roof. The ink was in a dumpster that was used for the roofing job and fell on the street when the dumpster was moved in June.

Advanced Disposal tried to remove the ink by power washing, but it did not work.

Channel 2’s Consumer Investigator Jim Strickland contacted a corporate official who promised to to use a solvent to clean the street.

"It just went on and on and on and without your help I don't know what we would have done," said Pat Bush.
