Because of the nationwide coin shortage Escambia County is asking citizens to use exact change when paying fees for waste services. The county said payments need to be made with exact change or by check at the Perdido Landfill and the Oak Grove Convenience Center. Debit and credit cards are also accepted at the Perdido Landfill. The Oak Grove Convenience Center is only open on Fridays and Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
