County Road Crews Picked Up 21 Tons of Trash Last Month


Shelby County trash crews removed 21 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, Southeast Shelby County, North-East Shelby County and Cordova. A D.U.I. offender crew also works on Saturdays.

The most roadside debris was noted along Macon at Pisgah in East Shelby County, Crumpler in Southeast Shelby County and Mullins Station at Whitten near Cordova.


Shelby County Public Works has hidden cameras in the unincorporated neighborhoods. Illegal dumping offenders are prosecuted.
