|2013 Litter Control Control Unit collection statistics|
The Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office Litter Control Unit picked up 8,040 pounds of trash during the month of December. The amount exceeded only the months of June and August as the third lowest amount of the year. October collections netted 20,490 pounds of trash as the highest collection month.
Trash collections are based on available manpower and cooperative weather conditions. The total for 2013 was 136,450 pounds of trash taken to the Wakulla County transfer station for disposal.
The litter control crew collected 661,920 pounds in 2009; 201,830 in 2010; 196,420 in 2011 and 213,680 in 2012. The 2013 total would have exceeded the 2012 total except for 80,270 pounds of debris collected by the unit as a result of June’s Tropical Storm Debbie in July 2012.
Male and female crews collect trash along the side of state and county roads on a regular basis using inmate and community service labor.
