RJ Schinner Co. is located on Space Park South Drive near Mill Creek.
High waters from Mill Creek on March 28 washed debris from the company’s warehouse down the creek. Debris was found strewn along the banks from the industrial park, located south of Briley Parkway, all the way to the Whitsett Park area.
Cleanup is happening for a staggering amount of debris at a south Nashville park. With this amount of trash left from Sunday's flooding, some in the city are looking for who's responsible.
Volunteers have been picking up debris along the creek banks since the flooding subsided.
