Recycling Center Closing
During the past two years, the prices paid for sorted recycled materials have dropped precipitously. Today, unsorted recyclables have little market value. Centers are charging a fee to take our unsorted recyclables. Henry County has declined to open a sorted recycling facility in or near Hampton.
Due to the rising expense, the recycling center at the old city shop will be closed on August 1, 2015. For those who would like to continue recycling, sorted materials may be taken to the Henry County Recycling Center, 25 Ashbury Road, McDonough. Also, several independent vendors are available for curbside pickup. A list is available at http://www.co.henry.ga.us/green/curbsiderecycling.shtml. Fees vary.
Qualifying Fee for Council
The qualifying fee for the City of Hampton General election to be held in 2015 was set by the Council at its December 9, 2014 meeting. There are council 3 seats at large.
For the position of Council member the annual salary is $8,400.00, the qualifying fee for this position is set at $252.00. This fee must be paid at the time of qualifying.
