Official apologizes for comment

Brewton folks: Please accept my sincere apology for my reference to hazardous material being “carted off to Brewton” in a WKRG interview. My reference was to the BFI Timberlands Landfill, with a Brewton address, which accepts “less-hazardous” hazardous material.
Speaking to a reporter, I should have been more careful with my words and remembered the name of the facility.  Again, I’m sorry, no offense was intended, and I’ll try to be more careful.
With best regards,
Tom Herder
