DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — The Houston County Commission has approved its updated sanitation policy.

Last month, the commission voted to increase the sanitation fee by five dollars and enhance services like adding another crew.

Now with the policy updated, customers will see some trash piles picked up from the roadside without having to schedule or pay for them to be picked up.

The new policy says trash is considered as large cardboard boxes, toys, and household items.

However, the county will not be picking up tires and tree stumps.

Commission Chairman Mark Culver said a document will be sent out to customers they hope by the end of the week.
