Lincoln Heights is a historically African American community located outside the Roanoke Rapids corporation limits. For the past seventy years the city has regularly dumped its garbage there in three landfills; the city does not provide Lincoln Heights with trash service. Although two of the landfills have since closed, the residents are still living among the dumps. Cowell discusses this problem and the waste transfer station that the city proposes to build there.
