Lamar supervisors set dates for recycling program, budget hearing | News
LAMAR COUNTY (WDAM)- In a few days, Lamar County residents will be able to recycle paper and plastic products along with aluminum cans within the county. Lamar County Supervisors Thursday said the county's new recycling program should be ready to begin by Friday, Aug. 24.
Recycle bins will be set up at several locations around the county to accept old newspapers, cardboard, plastic soda bottles and aluminum cans. Advanced Disposal (Sumrall Recycling) will collect and process the recyclable items at no cost to taxpayers.
"There are some areas that might not be covered real well right now," said Phillip Carlisle, Dist. 4 supervisor. "But, (Sumrall Recycling) only had so many bins available right now. So, if it's a success, we might be able to add more. If some don't get utilized, we might be able to move some," Carlisle said.
Meanwhile, supervisors have also set a date for a public hearing on the county's fiscal year 2013 budget. It will be held in the supervisors meeting room on Sept. 4 at 11 a.m. Currently, that $47 million budget does not include a tax increase.
