Transporting trash tacks on costs for town
With less than two weeks’ notice, the Town of Tunica will soon face a hefty bill for taking out the trash.
According to Mayor Chuck Cariker, Waste Management, who manages the Tunica County landfill, will begin charging the Town of Tunica $20 a ton on June 21 for trash such as tree limbs, grass clippings, sticks, etc. Cariker said that fee was included in the contract between the entities but had not been enacted until now. The Town will continue to haul residential garbage into the landfill at no charge.
