Councilors ask for residents to report litter offenders around the city to help curb illegal dumping
Litter patrols and neighborhood clean-up efforts are in high demand throughout Birmingham as the war against illegal dumping continues. City council members say they often are forced to take a hard stance surrounding this self-inflicted problem. Councilor Marcus Lundy says residents need to start picking up their trash as well as reporting others who illegally litter. Trash dumps along neighborhood streets are creating a serious safety hazard so city leaders are asking residents to take new pride in their surroundings and report offenders.
