MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland is acting on his words when it comes to trash cans.

Last week, Strickland apologized for the backlog, saying the city ran out of replacements and accepted the full blame.

Saturday morning, he hit the road with the public works director to deliver garbage carts to residents who have been waiting for weeks.

Strickland said crews will now keep a larger stockpile on hand and are working overtime to get to everyone who has requested a new cart.
