Trion Offers Dumpster During Spring Cleanup

The Trion police and maintenance will provide a dumpster in the parking lot at Town Hall from March 4-15 to help citizens get rid of debris. Use of the dumpster is free.
The town is pushing for a “spring cleanup blitz” in the next few weeks.
Police Chief David Gilleland earlier this month posted a letter to town residents urging them to clean up their porches and yards or face possible fines for violations of the town’s property.
Gilleland told The News officers will be checking porches for items like indoor furniture and washing machines. Non-running vehicles and scrap metal left on lawns will be ticketed.
Gilleland said all neighborhoods in the town will be monitored.
Also, Gilleland said officers and Chattooga County Animal Control will be on the lookout for loose dogs or illegally tethered dogs.
The town council passed a tethering ordinance in April of 2018. That ordinance went into effect on June 30.
