Bids on Curbside Pickup Expected Before End of 2009

Several weeks after approving it, Lauderdale County supervisors have yet to advertise for bids for curbside garbage pickup.

Supervisors on the board's sanitation committee say they expect they will do that by the end of the year though.

After a meeting Monday, they say they hope to be able to make a decision shortly thereafter on whether or not to scrap the county's brown box garbage drop-off program in favor of curbside.

"We'll just have to look at the bids and see the costs, and if the costs are reasonable, then it has a good chance of going door to door," said District 1 supervisor Hank Florey. "But if not, we'll keep the system we have now."

"We're the only county that I know of that's still full box service," said District 3 supervisor Craig Hitt. "So yes, I think eventually, we've got to go to a different format."

Hitt said if the numbers work out, he hopes the county could go curbside by next spring.
