Birmingham city leaders looking to tackle waste management issue

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) – The last thing you want to see as you look out from your window at home is a pile of garbage. However, that is a view that many possess for days on end.

Waste management remains a huge point of contention in the Magic City. Some folks have recently been complaining about the size of the trash and brush piles in the Roebuck Springs neighborhood.

The trash piles in Roebuck Springs were scheduled for pick up on Friday, but they were still there early in the afternoon. City leaders recognize there is a problem, and stress they are working to resolve the issue.

“It has been a source of frustration for me in particular, the way that the city has done waste management up to this point,” said City Councilor Darrell O’Quinn.
