Cannon County Government is currently accepting proposals for the hauling of trash from its transfer station/convenience center to a landfill in Murfreesboro.
Currently the work is being performed by Pemberton Trucking. It's contract runs through Sept. 1.
With the help of three state grants, the county is in the process of making changes to the convenience center, some of which may impact the types of containers which are hauled to the landfill.
The county has placed the following advertisement in the May 29 edition of the Courier:
