MOBILE, AL (WALA) -

An update on a story FOX10 News has been following for several weeks. Trash piling up in front of homes in Mobile.

Mobile's Director of Public Works, John Peavy, told the city council Tuesday that trash pickup is back on schedule.

The city has been behind schedule on trash pickup and that left piles of trash in front of some homes for days longer than expected.

Peavy said, "Unfortunately, this happened for a lot of reasons. and none of it is because if the employees. It was weather, it was holidays, it was a new director, various issues."

Peavy also said a recent job fair provided a good pool of prospective workers for the public works department and they don't expect problems in the future.
