Montgomery residents fed up with litter problem

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Local residents are upset after seeing a large pile of unwanted furniture dumped in their neighborhood.

“It’s wrong. It’s not a dumping site, but apparently people are using it as a dumping site,” said resident Robert Green.

Montgomery residents are coming together to try to keep their neighborhoods clean.

“I’m very upset, disturbed. It’s a bad, sore eye. I’ve been noticing this for the last two months,” said Dorothy Roberts. “I have notified the police department, 311, and everyone about this, and our neighborhood, Ridgecrest Southern Meadows Association, to see if we can get something done.”

Now these residents are looking for the next action to take.

“The only way I know how to clear this up is to put cameras in place, surveillance cameras. One on the west side and one one the east side of Edgemont street,” said Green. “The purpose there is to photograph pickup trucks or people in cars leaving dumped bulk items.”

“Whatever we do, even if we have to go deep deep in our pockets within our neighborhood association, we’re willing to do that,” said Roberts. “We beg of you. Please please do not drop any more trash in our neighborhoods.”

Pickups happen at this location on the first and third Saturday of every month.
