SOUTHAVEN, MS (AP) - About 520 Southaven residents have paid their $5 to get pink trash cans in support of breast cancer research.
Mayor Greg Davis tells The Commercial Appeal that the 96-gallon cans are expected to be on the streets in the city by September.
Davis said the city spent $45 apiece to buy the pink cans, and the $5 that residents pay will be donated to the American Cancer Society for breast cancer research.
He said the city ordered an initial 500 cans, and with the overwhelming response, it will have to order more.
