“It’s going to provide our residents a way to easily dispose of their garbage. And it will provide recycling opportunities for the citizens of Wakulla County,” says Wakulla County Commissioner Alan Brock.

“I personally don’t want to spend the expense of having

someone having to come pick it up and I guarantee you they’re not going to recycle,” says Margaret Duncan of Wakulla County.

Residents currently pay a fee to take their trash to a county landfill based on the amount of trash. Commissioners will vote on the proposal at the September 5th commission meeting.

People in Wakulla are mixed about it in the comments.

Would be nice if Lowndes County would keep citizens updated as they figure out what they are going to do about trash here.
