No Change to Solid Waste disposal Putnam County Ga
In the December 14, 2017, edition of the Eatonton Messenger, an article describing changes to the trash policy for Putnam County was published.
Quietly, over the holidays, a meeting was planned to discuss this plan. This meeting will be held Friday, January 5, 2018, at the Putnam Administration Building, 117 Putnam Drive, Suite A Room 203, 9 AM.
This plan will be disastrous for full and part time residents alike. In addition to being more costly, it will result in more litter on the side of the road as well as curbies on the side of the road for extensive periods of time. Pushing full containers to the road will create a hardship for citizens. Part timers will have to leave their garbage on the side of the road from the time they leave the area until they return to Putnam County. Garbage that will not fit will have to be delivered to the designated convenience center by the citizens, who will be charged an extra fee. Part timers will pay for service that they only use sporadically.
If the garbage company would like to change the current arrangement, the county should put the service out to a bid. At a minimum, more citizen input should be solicited and considered.
Please attend this meeting, if at all possible! Also, please sign this petition, if you agree this needs more discussion.
