Limestone resident wants yard pickup

ATHENS — It's an east, west grass dilemma.

Sharron Triolo, who moved to eastern Limestone County 3 years ago, said that area needs and wants yard debris pickup.

"Most of us don't have pickup trucks, and it's hard to get rid of yard clippings," she told the County Commission on Monday. "Most of us would gladly pay a monthly fee to have pickup once or twice a month."

Commission Chairman David Seibert said those living in western Limestone County, however, have trucks and "have a lot of places where they can dispose of it."

"And they wouldn't want to pay that fee," Seibert said.

Triolo said she knows families in Washington, D.C., and Virginia who are interested in relocating to eastern Limestone County due to the Base Realignment and Closure. She said such families are accustomed to receiving yard debris pickup.

Seibert said he would look into the cost of providing that service.

"People pay a little over $10 now, and that would run up the monthly cost considerably," he said.
