Representatives from Waste Management’s Five Oaks Disposal Facility between Taylorville and Kincaid presented Christian County Sheriff Bruce Kettelkamp with a $5,000 check Tuesday morning. The money will go towards the purchase of a new patrol car for the department.
Carl Niemann is the Director of Public Sector Solutions for Waste Management. He says they appreciate all that the Christian County Sheriff’s Department does to protect and serve residents of the county.
Kettelkamp says this donation helps him to provide his officers with the best equipment out there, and that he hopes this donation leads to other area businesses stepping up and helping the department.
Waste Management bought the site in Christian County 25 years ago, and Niemann says it has been a great partnership with the county since. He says they are happy to help the county in any way they can.
