Madison County Begins Work On Its 13th Solid Waste And Recycling Collection SiteFeb 22nd, 2011 | By Submitted | Category: Community News
It has long been recognized that “progress, sometimes slow, is measured by the result of continuous and dedicated effort.”
The long term goal of the Solid Waste and Recycling Department is to eventually remove all of the non-monitored industrial containers from the roadways of Madison County.
Thanks to some strategic planning by Allen Cherry, County Coordinator; Jerome Wyche, Coordinator, Solid Waste; and Recycling Department and the unparallel support of the Board of County Commissioners, the reality of accomplishing that objective is now only a short time away.
The citizens of the northwest quadrant of Madison County, specifically on Highway 150 North and Highway 146, will soon have controlled access and the same services afforded citizens at the other 12 managed collection sites throughout the county.
Even better, a massive amount of out-of-county dumping will come to a halt. Finally, after locating a parcel of property in the ideal location on Highway 150 north, also known as Lovett Road, work to clear the property and get it ready for surface preparation has begun.
The Solid Waste and Recycling Department takes great pride in the management and maintenance of the sites in the county and do their very best to provide the best services possible.
The Board of County Commissioners has agreed to name the site “Live Oak Bottom.” The services that will be provided to the citizens at that collection center will be no different than other sites.
Plans are underway to have the site fully operational, equipped with an on-site compacting system and ready to provide services on or about mid spring 2011, weather permitting. The Solid Waste and Recycling Department would like to thank the citizens who reside in those particular areas for their patience in waiting; “We know that it has been a long time coming, but the end is in sight,” they said.
“Please help keep Madison County clean.”
