Waste Management Update:

Ecosouth delivered the last trash containers on Tuesday according to the list of residential customers supplied to them by Advanced Disposal/Waste Management. If you have not yet received your container, please contact Ecosouth at 205.974.2287 and they will be happy to get you on the list for a new container and trash pickup. Ecosouth will pick up your garbage for a couple of weeks even if it is not in the new container to help with the transition. Also, remember that if you are a business, you will need to call Ecosouth to set up new service as they do not have a list of business customers.
