Star Staff Reports
mls-11-17-pick-up-october-3cShelby County trash crews removed almost 29 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 roadside debris was noted along St. Elmo, Old Covington Pike, Walnut Grove and Houston Levee.
Shelby County Public Works has hidden cameras in the unincorporated neighborhoods. Illegal dumping offenders are prosecuted.
