Safety Hazard! - Verizon inground junction box not covered

Outside my home there is a Verizon inground junction box that has no cover on it.

It measures about one foot by two foot wide and is about 2 foot deep.  I am afraid that somebody will trip on this or a small child may fall into this.  Out for a walk the other day, I noticed another box with the same problem.  However, someone had filled the hole with what looks like a half bale of straw!  I am not a Verizon customer.  I have tried calling Verizon but have been transferred to a number of different departments without ever getting to speak to a person.  Has anyone any idea of  where to call to get this resolved? Thanks in advance
