CORNERSVILLE - The town has a new contract for trash collection and it starts next month with a safety next courtesy of Lewisburg.
Allied Waste is contracted collect garbage for the town starting the second week in August. Waste Management, the company that planned to develop a landfill near Cornersville, is the old service provider.
Meanwhile, Cornersville obtained permission to rent a garbage truck from Lewisburg just in case their new service couldn't start on time next month.
City Administrator Taylor Brandon pursued the rental from Lewisburg as a contingency plan.
"It shouldn't be necessary," he said. "It was kind of a formality."
Cornersville's contract with Waste Management ends Aug. 7, and the new contract with Allied Waste starts Aug. 8.
Collection day will still be Wednesday, Brandon said. And Cornersville's 465-plus customers would be getting the same shiny blue trash carts that are now dotted 'round the streets of Lewisburg.
