Trash Pick-Up for Elderly

An elected Wiregrass official is urging his colleagues to help the elderly.

Geneva Councilman John Hughes wants city sanitation crews to pick-up trash cans from behind the homes of the physically-disabled and elderly.

Crews currently will only pick-up from those customers who have their cans alongside the road.

Hughes says he has listened to several complaints from the elderly and their families concerning trash pick-up.

"It’s my thought to help those unable, or don't have someone to do so for them, to make provisions to bring-up help for them," said Hughes.

The trash pick-up proposal is expected to be discussed during an upcoming Geneva City Council workshop session.
