RNN) - A train carrying approximately 10 million pounds of human waste is stuck in an Alabama rail yard, leaving about 1,000 nearby residents stuck with a foulness permeating their town. Containers filled with poop have sat for months in limbo in the town of Parrish, which is two hours north of Montgomery. To make matters worse, the excrement did not come from the town's residents. They want it gone. Waste management facilities in New York and New Jersey shipped loads of waste to Big Sky Environment, a landfill in Adamsville, AL, which is 24 miles southeast of the town. The neighboring town of West Jefferson filed and won an injunction against Big Sky in January to keep the sludge from a nearby landfill. As a result, it was moved to Parrish, where there are no zoning laws preventing it, and has sat there ever since. Parrish Mayor Heather Hall  http://www.cnn.com/2018/04/03/us/parrish-waste-poop-train-alabama-trnd/index.html" rel="nofollow - told CNN  that as many as 250 containers have been sitting in a rail yard next to a baseball and softball field. The town is only two miles wide, so everything is within smelling distance. Hall expected the poop train to be moved out within days when it first arrived in February, she told  http://www.wbrc.com/story/37552665/some-parrish-residents-want-sewage-sludge-moved-out-of-town" rel="nofollow - WBRC . Last week, she met with Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey and other state lawmakers to find a solution to the ongoing problem. She was assured by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Alabama Department of Environmental Management that the waste is not dangerous because it’s biowaste and not raw sewage. "Other than it smelling absolutely terrible, I have to trust them that it's not going to hurt you," she told CNN.

Bet if it was stored next to these politicians houses the waste would be gone post haste. Such is usually the case. Unless it affects them directly it's a tough titty rodeo.
