Southwest Carting stays in business

August 4, 2005

Albany-- Trash pick-up for some Albany residents won't stop, even though the people who run the garbage collection company are now the center of a money laundering scandal.

The leaders of Southwest Carting, Dora Wilson, James Hadley, Donna Wilson, Bernia Jackson and Courtney Jackson, face various charges for stealing money from Mary Polite and others, then investing it in properties and businesses.

The small company was subcontracted to pick-up garbage in parts of West Albany.

Now the court has appointed a construction manager, Sanford Hillsman, to run the business and its seven employees until the contract ends.
