Curbside vs. Boxes

At the Causeyville General Store in Lauderdale County, tradition runs deep. You can have your cheese cut right in front of you. And next door, you can throw out your trash in the county's traditional garbage system...dumpsters.

Newscenter 11 found several people who want to see green or brown boxes, to which people haul their own garbage, stay. But they also want to see more controls on them and a surveillance system installed to discourage violators.

"I see so many people who rebuilt a house and come and dump it all over the place/ You are going to have 10 times the mess, animals getting in garbage everywhere you look," said Charles Williams, a resident of District 5 of going to curbside pickup.

"They have people who come and dump, but shouldn't, so you would like to see them keep them, but regulate them more," said District 5 resident Dannie Lane.

For Brad Clark, the dumpsters are convenient and keep the garbage from sitting in his front yard.

"And with all the dogs, I would have trash all over the place," said Clark, who lives in District 5.

But other residents told Newscenter 11 they are more than happy to see the dumpsters become a thing of the past.

"I like curbside, so I don't have to carry it to a green box," said Leland Butler, a Lauderdale County resident.

"It's more of an eyesore as a green box," said Joseph Hardin. "And people can keep it in their front yard and keep it clean."
