Building a County for Every Citizen

A road contractor began full-depth reclamation on County Road 87 in the Omaha community on April 22. The project is from Wedowee Creek south 1.5 miles. Traffic will be delayed during this process.


Randolph County’s contract with Amwaste expired in the 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 transition to 121 Disposal was Nov. 1.

To sign up with 121 Disposal, please call (334) 707-4850 or visit www.121disposal.com.
