Shingle Mountain Removal Finally Begins

          The infamous pile of shingles and construction debris in southeast Oak Cliff near the I-20 and I-45 has finally begun its cleanup according to an article from NBC 5 DFW published on December 17th. In it they say: 


“Right now we really can’t get overjoyed as much as everybody else because we have seen this start before, constantly before. And it started before, and it stopped. And here it is again,” Marsha Jackson, who lives alongside the pile, told NBC 5. Jackson first complained to the city about the dumpsite in January 2018, which she described as being less than 50 feet from her bedroom. In interviews with NBC 5, Jackson said dust from the site forced her family indoors and impacted their health. By December 2018, the City of Dallas sued Blue Star Recycling, the company that had planned to grind up the shingles and sell them for use in road paving material, over code violations.”


         After years of battling it out in court, the pile of dust and debris is estimated to be fully cleared by 2021 according to a Fox 4 article published on December 18th. In it they say:


Contractors spent a few days preparing the site for safe removal, and crews started the process Thursday. The shingles will be moved to McCommas Bluff Landfill, where it’s set to be recycled. It’s estimated shingle mountain will be fully removed by March 2021.”


          The cleanup is a welcomed way to draw 2020, which has been a troubling year, to a close for the Dallas Community, and especially for Marsha Jackson.
