Recently the BOC posted a notice on their website that ADS would only pick up cans with Advance Disposal written on them or with ADS stickers. Some of us have old “Attaway Waste” cans, and ADS has been picking the trash up in them, too.
However, some residents have bought their own cans and fill them with garbage and set them out for ADS to pick up along with their ADS can. Some people have two or more ADS cans, but are only paying for one garbage pickup ($167 per year on the tax bill).
ADS or the BOC decided (at some point, but no one knows when) that only one can would be picked up if only one can was being paid for. Now a problem has arisen because no one knew about the change, and the notice on the county website is not easy to find. There was really no notice about the change (or enforcement) to the citizens.
