Winneshiek County makes no immediate changes to rural garbage collection

The Winneshiek County Board of Supervisors opted to reverse course on the rural garbage collection issue during its Monday morning meeting.

In the last week, the supervisors received numerous e-mails and phone calls imploring them not to abandon the program.

Winneshiek County Landfill Director TJ Schissel told the supervisors that the rural waste collection is set up to serve about 10,000 rural customers, and the private waste haulers that service the county aren’t prepared to take on that load.
