Trash Pick-Up Routes Delayed in Greenville Due to Equipment Failure, Mayor Announces

SHARE NOW

GREENVILLE, MS. – Mayor Simmons addressed the public yesterday, revealing that trash pick-up routes in Greenville are experiencing delays due to equipment failure. The routine operations of the sanitation department involve three loaders dedicated to collecting trash, but unfortunately, two of them are currently undergoing maintenance in Jackson. Consequently, the department is left with just one functioning loader to handle trash collection throughout the entire city.

In response to this challenge, the city council gathered during Tuesday’s meeting and approved overtime for workers in both the street department and sanitation department. This collaborative effort aims to expedite the trash collection process and bring the pick-up routes back on schedule.

Residents, excluding contractors, who find themselves with an overflow of trash are advised to take their waste to the city compound located at 502 Mill Road. The compound will be open from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, to accommodate those in need of alternative disposal options. Mayor Simmons expressed his gratitude for the patience and cooperation of the community during this temporary setback.

For any inquiries or further information, residents are encouraged to reach out to the City of Greenville at 662-378-1534.

The city administration is actively working to resolve the equipment issues, aiming to restore normalcy to the trash collection operations as swiftly as possible. Mayor Simmons acknowledges the inconvenience caused by the delays and assures residents that the city is committed to addressing the situation promptly.
