Ten Things You Can Find In the Pleasantville Garbage Pile
There's a pile of rotting garbage (some optimistically call it "mulch", but if it's been there since Ike, it's garbage) festering in Pleasantville, near the Port of Houston. It's been there since Hurricane Ike converted large chunks of the city to debris back in September, and now it looks like the Copeland Construction Group might finally move it on out of here.
Indeed, CCG were issued a citation earlier this month by the city health department, providing extra motivation to get moving. Soon the 20-foot-high, approximately football-field sized garbage pile will be relocated to a better home in Alabama.
