NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - Rural Nacogdoches County residents who still get rid of their garbage at county dumpsites are in for some changes. The three sites will be opened only one day a month. The once-a-week hours will end as of October 1st.
State environmental agencies are requiring weekly transfers of waste to the Lufkin landfill. Commissioners say that's cost prohibitive. "The increased cost would be roughly 50-60,000 additional dollars added to the already operating cost," Tom Strickland, pct 4 commissioner said.
