The stench of un-collected trash baking under the heat and humidity of the Mid-South is happening right now in Shelby, Tipton and Fayette counties.

Good Morning Memphis anchor Ernie Freeman found out that ABC Waste Management Company suddenly stopped trash pick-up a few weeks ago.

Once we called to try to figure out what was going on, we got the voicemail."

For ABC Waste customers, this stinks, not the smell in the air, although the rising temperatures might soon have an impact there too.

The customers have been making their monthly payments all along, and now it seems like ABC Waste Management has just been collecting the money, with no intention of collecting the trash.

Coming up tonight on FOX13 News at 10 hear what the owner has to say about the trash piles and the money he owes thousands of Mid-Southerners.
