There are many services provided to the people of Hickman County by the county government. Most of the time, the service is provided very efficiently and with high quality. When that happens, the various managers need to know that their department has done well. We also know that services are not always delivered as people expect. Sometimes we make mistakes; sometimes we can't do what people want. We need to know about those issues too. We've provided a feedback form for each of the departments.

Are You Ready for a Flood?

Know your area's flood risk -- if unsure, in the United States and its territories, call your local American Red Cross chapter or emergency management office. Consult this site's flood map as prepared by FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agencyi. If it has been raining hard for several hours, or steadily raining for several days, be alert to the possibility of a flood. Listen to local radio or TV stations for flood information. Floods Can Take Several Hours to Days to Develop.

Are You Ready for a Chemical Spill?

Chemicals are a natural and important part of our environment. Even though we often don't think about it, we use chemicals every day. Chemicals help us keep our food fresh and our bodies clean. They help our plants to grow and fuel our cars. And chemicals make it possible for us to live longer, healthier lives. Under certain conditions, chemicals can be poisonous or have a harmful effect on your health. Some chemicals that are safe, and even helpful in small amounts, can be harmful in larger quantities or under certain conditions. Chemical accidents do happen ... at home and in the community, and the American Red Cross wants you to be prepared.

Legally Dispose of Solid Waste

When the facility your use is closed, whether it be the Transfer Station, one of the Convenience Centers or the Roving Convenience Truck, it is illegal to leave material on the ground outside that facility or on the ground in general.

The facilities have set hours that they operate for your material, and refuse may be disposed of only during those times. This is not just a county law. This is a state law. When material is left unattended we get in contact with the 7th District Tennessee Highway Patrol Litter Coordinator. If we furnish him with names from this material, even if they were not the one's who left it, they are subject to prosecution which could result in stiff fines and penalties.

All solid waste facilities in Hickman County operate on a set schedule unless it is a legal holiday. Please keep your community and county clean. If the facility you use is closed when you arrive, please be responsible and do not leave your waste on the ground. The hours of operation for all facilities is given below.
