Advanced Disposal Services, Inc., a regional integrated environmental services company, will begin servicing about 3,700 Dooly County residents beginning Monday.

Dooly County selected Advanced Disposal after a competitive bid process in which four private haulers submitted proposals to privatize the county’s solid waste collection services. The county has provided services to residents prior to awarding the contract to Advanced Disposal.

“We are doing our best to ensure a smooth transition for our new customers in Dooly County,” said Charlie Gray, regional vice president for Advanced Disposal. “We’re also pleased to welcome Toby McSwain to the Advanced Disposal family. Toby worked as a driver for the county and will now drive a new Advanced Disposal truck.”

Dooly County residents will still receive once per week curbside collection using their existing carts. Those residents whose pick-up day will change will receive a letter notifying them of their new collection day. Residents who do not receive a letter will have the same collection schedule.

County residents are encouraged to call the county at (229) 268-4228 or Advanced Disposal’s Americus hauling company at (229) 928-1170 with any questions.
