Russell County CourthouseThe Russell County Commission addressed sanitation service changes within the county at its meeting Monday.

Commissioner Steve Boxberger explains the change.

"We canceled our current trash contract for the outlying, incorporated cities," Boxberger said. "We canceled the current contract and entered into two new contracts with two new haulers and adjusted the rates. Those contracts will be in effect until 2015."

The two new haulers are T&G Sanitation Service, LLC and Chism's Trash Service. T&G will serve northern Russell County while Chism's will serve the south. Contact the Russell County Courthouse for more information.
