Building a County for Every Citizen

Randolph County’s contract with Amwaste expires this fall, and so bids were taken for a new contract for picking up residential trash in the county. The low bidder is 121 Disposal Co. with $81.27 per quarter. Amwaster’s bid was $100 per quarter. Other companies were invited to bid, but these were the only two bids received. The Amwaste bills customers are receiving now are prorated because the target date for the switch in companies is Nov. 1.

The Randolph County Commission has purchased a new emergency alert system called Hyper-Reach that is free to the public to sign up. Please enroll by calling or texting “Alert” to 265-540-8664 or by going to the website http://hyper-reach.com/alrandolphsignup.html.

We will send out a text alert stating when you will no longer receive a text from Randolph County Sheriff
