Loose trash being accepted at Camp Road facility
A former Jones Mountain landfill customer tosses a bag of garbage into the bin at his new drop-off point at the Pickens County Recycling Center. The center is located on Camp Road across from the Georgia State Patrol headquarters.
In an effort to streamline operations, cut down on hauling fees and make dumping more convenient for Pickens residents, the dump on Jones Mountain has been closed and relocated to the recycling facility off Camp Road.
Scales have not yet been moved to the new location, but Pickens County Public Works Director Greg Collis said loose trash is now being accepted.
The recycling facility and dump are located at 3141 Camp Road, Jasper, Ga. 30143. They are open Tuesday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Collis said at this point there are no plans for the old dump site.
