The permits for the contractors that collect garbage in the county are up for renewal this week, and on the order of Trigg County Judge Executive Stan Humphries, the renewed permits will require them to collect garbage only between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m.

The Trigg County Fiscal Court took up the issue of early garbage pickup when it met Monday evening. Humphries said the pickup schedule is effective immediately. Magistrate Mike Wright said he and some of his fellow magistrates have been fielding complaints from constituents off and on for at least the past four months.

“As we reviewed last court meeting, there was still issue with the picking up of trash at certain locations,” said Humphries. “It was occurring at what we consider the middle of the night, two or three in the morning, and we’ve had a lot of complaints.”

Humphries says that although the county has made several phone calls and has even sent an official letter to the offending contractor, it was apparently for naught.

Trigg County Attorney Randall Braboy will look at the county’s solid waste ordinance – which dates back to July 1990 – and will come back at the next meeting with some proposed amendments.
