Residents asked to continue avoiding Gose Pike Convenience Center

With construction of the new tower at Goss Pike Convenience Center still going on, the Boyle County Solid Waste Department is still asking residents to use other centers.  

Boyle County Solid Waste Director Donna Fechter updated the Boyle County Fiscal Court on Tuesday about the project.  

As of this week, the block for the new tower has been laid, and next Monday, the road department will start to frame the new building, she said.  

Fechter said last week went very well, with many residents using other convenience centers. But on Monday, 316 people used the Gose Pike Convenience Center. Fechter said this number is average for a Monday, but with the construction, having that many people puts a strain on the available waste boxes.

Fechter said the waste dumped Monday was equal to half of all waste dumped at the center last week.

“We need people to continue to go to the other convenience centers if they can,” Fechter said.

Construction of the building is estimated to take three weeks and be complete on Dec. 2.
