Many of you may have noticed various pieces of metal on the streets of downtown Knoxville over the past months. Many residents, starved for big-city living have embraced these items as ‘art,’ even drawing attention to them.
Waste Connections of Tennessee has admitted today that these are nothing more than piles of garbage that the waste company was unsure how to dispose of. “As we piled the garbage, the downtowners embraced it, even loved it,” says Sanford Foxx, VP of Picking Up Trash. “Anything we didn’t know what to do with, we just started putting it on the corner and hoping for the best.”
The trash has become such a fixture in downtown, that it is expected to stay.
