More Convenience Centers Opening
Wednesday, 23 December 2009

December 23--  The effort to rid Toombs County of unsightly green dumpster trash sites is moving forward.

The county is opening two more convenience centers Saturday morning at 116 Gibson Road off Aimwell Extension and at 320 Tomlin Road.  A year ago the county opened its first convenience center in Cedar Crossing, and it's been well received according to county commissioner Steve Brown, the county's garbage czar.  "I have yet to have one person tell me they didn't like it," he reports.

County residents can bring not only their household garbage to the centers, but also items like furniture and appliances.  "Convenience centers have the capability to accept old furniture and those kinds of things, and there will be an attendant there who can assist you and educate you about the facility," Brown says.

The centers will be open from seven a.m. till seven p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays and from one till six p.m. Sundays.

At least two more centers are being planned for 2010, according to Brown.  "We have two others in some general vicinities that we've yet to absolutely tie down, but I hope we can build an additional two or maybe three in 2010."

The centers will not accept yard trash nor construction debris, but Brown hopes at some point in the future they will start taking materials which can be recycled.
