IRMO, SC (WIS) - After months of negotiations and dozens of complaints from homeowners, the town of Irmo is transitioning to a new trash pickup service.
Irmo leaders say they've terminated the town's contract with Advanced Disposal effective July 30. The following day, Aiken-based Tyler Sanitation will begin collecting household trash, recyclables, and yard waste.
Town Administrator Bob Brown says Advanced Disposal had been given an opportunity to explain its performance issues at a hearing scheduled for May 2. But he says a company representative failed to show up for the hearing.
The company served about 4,700 households in Irmo.
A Lexington County spokesman says the company will be asked to outline its plans to address those issues at a meeting that has not yet been scheduled.
