After a plea from residents of the Cumberland Trail Subdivision amongst Booze Mountain, Bordeau Metals confirmed this week that their contract to recycle large pieces of metal from Plant Hammond has been terminated.

Bordeau Metals founder and CEO Brad Bordeau said, “Because of the neighbors and the county talking to Georgia Power we have lost that contract….We were not moved, our contract was terminated.”

A statement from a Georgia Power spokesman said the utility had directed the contractor to stop sending materials to Bordeau on February 3.

Bordeau added that if the Rome Floyd County Development Authority doesn’t re-purchase the 18 acre tract, he’d ensure it was turned into a permanent metal scrap yard.

The company purchased the property from the development authority for $25,000 an acre.
