Families at McDougald Terrace say they have been dealing with trash overflowing in the dumpsters at the Durham public housing complex for weeks.
Ashley Canady, resident president at McDougald Terrace said, “People are not cooking in their homes because of the flies.” “You wouldn’t want your grandchildren, your family members, or your loved ones having to deal with this on a day-to-day basis; why should anyone else?”
On Tuesday afternoon, some crews from the City of Durham’s Neighborhood Improvement Services Department came out and picked up the trash on the ground next to some of the dumpsters.
Late Tuesday, crews could also be seen emptying some of the dumpsters at the complex.
There is still more to do, however.
