BRONSON - When Renate Cannon asked if Levy County had discontinued its recycling trailer program, Landfill Director Benny Jerrels explained the situation during the March 4 County Commission meeting.

A problem with these trailers arises, Jerrels said, when people use them to dump household garbage there. When that happens, the trailers are removed from locations for a period of time or forever.

The recycle trailers have had tires stolen off of them and some people have even used them as a place to dump dead deer carcasses, Commission Chairman Sammy Yearty said.

Another county commissioner asked about modifying the program.

"Have you ever considered buying or leasing a site?" Commissioner Nancy Bell asked.

Yearty said this has been considered, but it would require adding staff to man the trailer.

Gilchrist County has a method that seems to work as a method of reducing theft, vandalism and illegal dumping at recycling trailers. Gilchrist County travels with its trailers and does not let them sit unmanned. The recycle trailer is just at a site a particular day of the week or month.
