Commissioner Tommy Robinson began the discussion at the March 5 meeting by asking fellow commissioners their opinion. He said going to curbside service is the extreme of the present method of disposal, which for those living in the unincorporated area of Jones County, is taking their waste to one of eight convenience centers.
Where to take it depends on what the resident needs to dispose of, such as yard waste is accepted at the convenience center on Overland Way and motor oil is accepted at the center on Garrison Road.
The centers are open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily with the exception of Monday when all centers are closed and Sunday when they are open from 1-7 p.m.
“We need to look at other ways of saving money even if we continue operating as we are now,” Robinson stated.
