Class action lawsuit filed against City of Memphis and MLGW over trash troubles – FOX13 News Memphis

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – A class action lawsuit has been filed against the City of Memphis and MLGW over garbage problems.

Watson Burns, PLLC, filed the lawsuit on behalf of Area E residents and business owners, who say they are paying for a service they are not receiving.

Area E includes neighborhoods such as Cordova, Hickory Hill, Windyke, and parts of East Memphis.

A press release stated: “The lawsuit sets out how Area E residents and business owners are paying the city of Memphis through MLG&W. Area E residents are required by law to enter into a garbage service contract with the City of Memphis and are required to pay the Memphis City retail prices for bulk services. The City of Memphis routinely does not provide the expected service. “
