Todd county residents could have a chance to get a new residential trash pickup service, but they need to sign up for it first to make it happen.
After Republic Services pulled out the county in June, Todd County Fiscal Court has been searching for a new waste management service to fill in the gap for those residents. Judge-Executive Todd Mansfield says Queen City Disposal and Waste Enterprises is willing to work with the county, but they need at least 250 people to sign up first and the first sign up day is July 13.
He says the service is available to any interested citizen, not just former Republic customers.
Other days for sign-up include July 16 and 17. Representatives will be at the Todd County Courthouse between 1 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. on Friday and Monday, and then from 8 a.m. until 12 p.m. on Tuesday. Mansfield says if they don’t get amount they need in that time they could expand it through the month.
He says if enough people signup, residential trash collection could begin soon, but if they don’t then people may have to start purchasing trash cards to use a county convenience center.
Residents wanting utilizing the free month provided at the centers will need to present something showing they were a Republic customer. A trash card is normally $36 annually. Mansfield says any questions about the service, such as prices, will have to be directed towards Waste Enterprises.
