MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) – During his weekly press conference, Montgomery Mayor Todd Strange said Repower South is fine-tuning its equipment and ready to roll.
‘”They’re taking some trash now,” said Montgomery Mayor Todd Strange.
Company leaders say the testing is going well and should up and running in about two weeks. 65 people will be hired, some are already on board. City leaders say they feel more confident this time around.
“We will continue to put our household waste in the green cans and you won’t ever know the difference in how things are being collected and being done,” said Montgomery Public Works Director Chris Conway.
Montgomery bought the facility for $625,000 after the previous company went bankrupt about four years ago. Part of the city’s 25-year deal with Repower South calls for the business to share a portion of its profits with the city of Montgomery.
