In conjunction with the City of Memphis, beginning in 2021, we wanted to bring you current monthly results on illegal dumping violators, fines accessed, sites reported, sites cleaned, and more. Unfortunately, we are unable to obtain relevant data pertaining to our request.

You have questions, we want to get you accurate answers.
There are four (4) property owners in this area. Two have agreed to financially support the purchase of solar and battery powered LTE cameras and two have not. We are working daily to get all four property owners involved, but the City of Memphis records do not show where any of these property owners are being charged when this area is being cleaned, so why should they care? They don't live in this community.
In response to several complaints, the City of Memphis sent crews to E. Levi Road to clean up, but no invoices for cleaning charges have been discovered through a public records request.
The City of Memphis cleaned the area...
We are seeking to clean up as many areas of Memphis as possible. Your financial support is greatly appreciated.
The land which used to be the location of the Former McCorkle Apartments, 4392 McCorkle Road, is in a terrible state of disrepair and has become one of several dumping grounds inside the Whitehaven community. Owned by a firm located in Bartlett, I have to ask why? Would a piece of property, owned by a Whitehaven firm, be allowed to look like this this one does in Bartlett? You say no? Then why allow the reverse?
Update: A remarked change was seen in the cleanliness of the bushes lining Elvis Presley Boulevard between Raines Road and Laudeen Drive after bringing the trash to the attention of management. The area had been cleaned when I drove through Sept. 14th.

Update: The vote was 2 for and 8 against for this development at the Land Use Control Board hearing. Arguments regarding traffic concerns went unaddressed. This project will now be moving to City Council for a December 15, 2020 final determination.
