Weather forces hiccup in Advanced Disposal service

Marengo County residents who have not had their garbage picked up this week can rest easy according to Advanced Disposal Services.

The company temporarily suspended its garbage routes in Marengo County Tuesday and Wednesday after a corporate decision was handed down instructing such.

Garbage collected in Marengo County goes to an Advanced Disposal landfill in South Alabama. Given the threat of severe weather off the tropical storm system known as Isaac, the company felt it best not to send personnel into the area until the inclement weather passed, according to employees at Advanced Disposal’s Linden facility.

Advanced Disposal trucks began running their Tuesday service routes Thursday. The trucks are scheduled to pick up garbage from their Wednesday routes Friday before taking care of the regular Thursday and Friday routes Saturday.
