Trucks picking up contaminated trash

September 27, 2002

Seminole County - The sounds of garbage trucks are finally echoing around flooded homes in Seminole County.

Starting Friday, SRS garbage trucks started cleaning up contaminated trash. The two trucks will make two full trips on every street. Flood victims are happy to see the piles disappear. Donalsonville resident, Ulysee Holland, says, "It make you feel good when you walk out and you don't see all this out there in front of your house. Anytime you walk out the door and you see that, it's just a reminder what you done lost, you see. It makes the community look good when it move."

SRS is expected to finish in fifteen days. They'll work 12 hour shifts, seven days a week.

Operators will not pick up hazardous materials or household garbage. Debris must be put on the right-of-way.

The trash is being taken to a landfill in Florida.
