Issues: noise complaint
900 E. Six Forks Rd. Raleigh, NC
I've been reporting from some time about a very loud truck reverse beeper noise that can be heard at all hours of the day/night. Also, there is a loud horn honking that accompanies the beeper.
You required that I investigate the source myself, since the officers were unable to find it. Here are the details:
The location is 2200 Atlantic Ave. It is in fact the Waste Management facility.
I can respect that they are in an industrial area, but considering how far away they are located from our neighborhood, I hope it can impress upon you and them exactly how unreasonably loud their trucks are.
What I would like to see is that they make the following changes:
- Not blow their truck horns. The truck I witnessed was on the Whittaker Rd side and the only reason they did it was the reinforce the fact that they were backing up (while the reverse beeper was on, mind you).
-Adjust the reverse beepers on their trucks to a more reasonable level. We have other businesses that are much closer that occasionally use reverse beepers that we can only hear while outdoors. I see no reason at all why they need ones that are so loud that they can be clearly heard (indoors) nearly mile away, especially when they run a 24 hour a day operation.
Thanks for you help in having this resolved. I'm sure they just have no idea how far the sound travels, and I hope they can fix the issue promptly.

I reported the Reverse beeper noise 2 weeks ago, and since then it has gotten steadily worse. It happens all day, but now after midnight, it is louder, more frequent and there are numerous vehicles. Additionally, there are other heavily equipment noises accompanying it until 2am on weeknights. I do not know the business involved, but an officer or city rep would be able to hear it clearly from the front of the Manor Six Forks development after 12am.
