Giordano: Solution in works on green boxes / October 23, 2017

Halifax County ED-6 Supervisor Larry Giordano said this week that he is working with local landowners in to find a permanent site for the green boxes that the county furnishes for trash collection in the Turbeville area.

Green boxes have been returned to the Turbeville Ruritan property on Melon Road, after members of the club voted to allow them on a temporary basis until a permanent location can be found.

The club had back in June asked that the boxes be removed because they were abused and overloaded, causing a mess. Oftentimes people would put in inappropriate items such as construction materials, household items and other things that littered the surrounding road.

After residents complained of the inconvenience caused by the removal of the boxes, Ruritan club members voted to allow the boxes to be returned for an interim time until a permanent location could be found for a convenience center.

Giordano said he believes that a permanent location will be soon be found. “As we all work together, I am confident that this issue will be resolved to the satisfaction of all concerned,” he said.

Giordano said he expects the issue to come before supervisors at their Nov. 6 meeting.
