County lawn waste container erroneously removed; will be returned to Carver Road station

SHEILA A. MATHEWS :::

Spalding County residents will soon be able to resume disposing of yard waste at the Carver Road refuse collection center.

The container designated for that use was erroneously removed Sunday.

In a Tuesday afternoon interview, County Manager William Wilson initially said it was removed at the wish of the Board of Commissioners.

“I’ll have to check, but I think the commissioners said remove bulky and lawn waste,” Wilson said when asked why the yard waste container had been removed. “I know that was staff’s recommendation.”

However, Wilson later apologized and said that container would be returned.

“Staff’s original recommendation was to discontinue yard waste collections, too, but it was not in BOC’s (Board of Commissioners) motion,” he said. “I miscommunicated to (the) solid waste department to remove all containers. Yard waste container will be placed back at Carver Road Collection Center this week. Sorry for the confusion.”
