NATCHEZ — The Adams County Board of Supervisors heard an update Monday from Doug Atkins with Waste Pro.

The company’s trash pickup schedule has been off lately because they have had to replace three drivers at the same time and have been using substitute drivers from other markets, Atkins said.

New drivers have been hired and route pickups should return to normal soon, he said.
