Holstein Sanitation changes hands, name

Justin Georg and Billy Carnine took over the operation of Holstein Sanitation Jan. 1. Georg’s parents and Carnine’s aunt and uncle, John and Terri Georg, ran the business for 30 years. The couple purchased the business from Terri’s father, Bud Ehler in January 1987. Ehler operated the business for 17 years.

Justin said, “I started riding on the back of my grandpa and dad’s trucks when I was in the sixth grade. I started Ida County Sanitation in 1999 when we purchased the Spotts Brothers’ business when they retired, a month after I graduated from high school. I had big shoes to fill and a lot of learning. I don’t think I’d ever been past downtown in Ida Grove.”

Carnine worked for his aunt and uncle for 15 years, starting out mowing the lawn and riding the back of the truck.
