UPDATE: Debris collection to begin Monday

-A A +A

UPDATE — A company has signed a state contract to collect storm-related debris after the first company that agreed to do so bailed out of its contract last week.

Anderson County Judge-Executive Steve Cornish confirmed today that T and F Contractors is scheduled to begin picking up debris Monday, Feb. 23.

The city and county announced last week that the state had approved a contract to have debris from the ice storm earlier this month picked at residences, saving homeowners from paying to have it removed or moving it themselves to two designed locations.

By Tuesday night, though, it was revealed that contractor decided he wasn't making enough money and left the county.
