Cullman County Sanitation Department has been out this week distributing new garbage containers to all county residents. Although there are several reasons that the Cullman County Commission approved new automated trucks, the number one reason is SAFETY. There are currently five sanitation employees who are out of work due to an injury on the job, and in June of 2016, one employee lost his life while working. According to the County Commission, saving lives and cutting down on injuries is always the number one priority.
The new garbage pickup system will take place no later than May 4th, 2020. The sanitation department has been and will continue to train. The Cullman County Commission and Sanitation Department ask for your patience during this transition. If you feel you need an additional container, please contact the Cullman County Sanitation Department at 256-287-1142. There will be a small monthly fee for an additional container.
