Press Release

On Saturday, February 12, 2022, the QMC Neighborhood Watch Program did their annual trash clean-up.  This event comes around during March of every year.  This year's clean-up yielded a large amount of Neighborhood Trash.  Chief Deputy Dammon McGilton with the Stone County Sheriff's Department assisted in the program.  Citizens picked up three truck loads of trash and a 16ft dump bed trailer full.  The clean-up took place on QMC road and the roads off of QMC to include part of Sawmill Road and Highway frontage.  Citizens located two illegal dump sites.  Approximately 30 tires, a refrigerator, television sets, heaters, old toilets, and rolls of carpet were just a few of the items collected.  The trash was taken to the County Dump.  Chief Deputy McGilton would like to warn people that illegally dumped trash on the county roads could yield penalties and fines if caught by the Sheriff's Department.   Chief Deputy McGilton stated that the sheriff's department would like to assist other neighborhoods in clean-up efforts as the weather gets better.
