Madison County residents may have noticed recent changes at the Cardwell Container Site that include a new fence and gate. The location near Jefferson Island is also going to be available only three days a week.

According to Kacey Smart of the Madison County Sanitarian's Office, the container site will be open starting Nov. 15 on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The location will be locked at all other times.

In July of 2019, the Madison County Sanitation Board had discussed the move to a different site after concerns with county road easements, highway easements, railroad easements, high water, power lines, and ownership issues.

Smart said there were several Jefferson Island residents who said they would rather have it a few days a week than none at all, adding the board is hoping if it is open the same day as Whitehall's site there may be less out of county use will happen.
