Republic Services held a ribbon-cutting ceremony on March 15, 2022 at 10:00 a.m. to officially open the new Republic Services Transfer Station.
The transfer station is located at the Greenville Landfill located at 343 Landfill Drive in Greenville.
Former Alabama football star Roger Shultz, now a municipal relations manager at Republic Services, was on hand for the ceremony. Colin “Big C” MacGuire, Greenville Mayor Dexter McLendon, members of the Greenville City Council, members of the Butler County Commission, cheerleaders from Greenville High School and Fort Dale Academy , Tracy Salter, Executive Director of the Greenville Chamber of Commerce, and many others attended the event and ribbon cutting.
Roger Shultz said he was really excited about the new building. Shultz drew attention to the old transfer station across the yard.
“That’s what it was,” he said, pointing. “We’ve been working on this for a while.”
“That’s the outbuilding,” McLendon replied, “and this is the penthouse.”
A storm in 2020 hit the facility and caused significant damage. The facility was repaired and services continued according to general manager AJ Rogers. The original facility was built in 1993.
“We are only 30 years old with the City of Greenville,” Rogers said. With this facility opening tomorrow morning, we’ll start processing garbage around here. We will provide another 30 years of local garbage disposal services through a partnership between Republic Services and the City of Greenville.
Rogers expressed his thanks to the Mayor and the City of Greenville.
“We are thrilled to be great partners here in Greenville, Alabama for the next 30 years,” Rogers said.
