County Road Crews Picked Up Almost 32 Tons of Trash in January

Star Staff Reports

Public Safety January chartCounty trash crews removed almost 32 tons of garbage tossed along roads last month in the unincorporated areas and those bordering Shelby Farms.
“Every dollar used for litter could have been spent on other pressing citizen needs. Still, we’re committed to improving the appearance of Shelby County,” said Shelby County Mayor Mark H. Luttrell, Jr.
Public Works employees, Shelby County Corrections Center inmates and court-supervised offenders overseen by the non-profit agency Clean Memphis work weekly near Millington, Woodstock, Northaven, South-East Shelby County, North-East Shelby County and Cordova. An additional D.U.I. offender crew works on Mondays and Saturdays.
The most debris was noted along Walnut Grove, Raleigh-LaGrange and Coleman Road.
Shelby County Public Works has hidden cameras in some of the unincorporated neighborhoods. Offenders are prosecuted.
For litter complaints, call the Shelby County Mayor’s Action Center at 222-2300 or go to www.shelbycountytn.gov and click on the Report a Concern link.
