The search is on for a suspect who led the Tennessee Highway Patrol on a high speed chase overnight through Coffee County into Rutherford County.
Rutherford County has announced the closing of one of their recyle centers. The Solid Waste Department thanked Kroger on Friday, located on Sam Ridley Parkway in Smyrna, for over ten years of partnering to provide recycling services to the community. Kroger is now expanding to offer more services to customers and no longer has space available in the parking area for the recycling bins. The Rutherford County Solid Waste Department has expanded 13 of the 15 convenience centers to now accept all commodities that were formerly only accepted at the Kroger recycling center in Smyrna.
Residents are now encouraged to take recyclables to other nearby county locations such as the Weakly Lane Center, theSandHillCenter, and theAlmavilleRoadCenter. The centers are closed Monday and Thursday, but open Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. The hours on Saturday and Sunday are from 7:30 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. There is also a complete listing of convenience centers on the county website located at: www.rutherfordcountytn.gov/dept/convenience_center.htm
Curbside collection has also come toRutherfordCountyin the past several years with companies now offering very convenient collection services at home. For information on curbside service, contact RRR Technologies or All in One Recycling for further information. Both of these curbside collection companies are privately owned.
