On the other side of the issue, however, Rhodus and Prewitt don't agree with Dumpsters placed on farmers' land being considered commercial garbage removal.
The only Dumpsters allowed for residential uses are those placed on properties with multiple tenants by the property owners, which is considered a business, or businesses operated out of homes or on landowners' properties, which many contend farms should fall under.
Pschorr said the committee can no longer try to differentiate the waste and asked for the court's help.
"We need either Hack or you to be the deciding factor here. It seems that it should be the coordinator's job, and we've dealt with this for too long, have already brought it to your attention and we're still being held back by it," Pschorr said.
Hack will look into complaint calls
Bill Hack, solid waste coordinator, said he would look into complaint calls about commercial versus residential trash in the county and handle issues between vendors. County Attorney Jeff Moss said the court should be the deciding factor if Hack's decision was not agreed on by vendors.
"I don't think the court needs to be totally removed from responsibility, here. I think that just like in an appeal basis, the court should be the one to make the call if someone disagrees with Hack," Moss said.
The heated debate on whether farmers should be considered a business came up again, and many said if this was going to be regulated for farmers, it should be regulated for everyone.
Scott Smith, representative with Allied Waste that picks up commercial trash, asked if this meant farmers would be required to have both residential and commercial pick-up if they did have a Dumpster on their land, and how could the company be responsible to differentiate the farm's trash. Smith said a count showed there are only nine Dumpster sites in the county on farms.
Another crowd member said that this is not the question, and that Allied's Dumpsters are located all over the county where businesses are not, and not just on farms.
Hack and Smith both said this gray area will be clarified by the new contract.
"Remember, the new contract is only 17 days running, so give it some time to start working," Hack said.
