To the Citizens of Macon County: On December 3, 1979, the Macon County Commission will initiate a house-to-house Solid Waste Collection System for residents of rural Macon County in order to comply with Act No. 771 of the 1969 Legislature of Alabama. In order to achieve compliance, the law allows the County Commission to offer three {3) options to rural residents: They are as follows: I) That all business or households subscribe to an approved garbage pick-up program authorized by the County Commission; 2) After written application, the local health department may issue a permit to those individuals who wish to haul their own garbage to an approved sanitary landfill; 3) After written application, the local health department may issue a permit for the operation of individual landfills provided a site can be approved. In an effort to gain uniformity throughout the county among Solid Waste Contractors, the County Commission has set a maximum fee of $5.00 per month which contractors may charge rural residents. Contractors may charge less than the maximum fee, cannot exceed the maximum fee as set by the commission. Fees for businesses are negotiable. The $5.00 fee includes a once per week pick-up and a sufficient number of bags to be furnished by the contractor. The contractor will be responsible for contacting rural residents. Persons desiring to become Solid Waste Contractors must secure a permit from the local health department and must purchase a license from the County Commission. Interested per ns should contact the Macon County Commission. George S.
