ASTORIA, Queens – Residents in Astoria say they haven’t been able to sleep because of noisy trucks rattling through their neighborhood and loudly beeping as they back up, as early as 4:30 a.m.

A viewer contacted PIX11 News for help. Berty Samovici recorded video of the disruptive daily noise. He said trucks owned by Goodwill are constantly backing up, evening on the weekends and early in the morning.

PIX11 News reached out to the CEO of Goodwill, who promised to fix the problem.

“We are going to stop the noise,” she said.
