Last month, Macon-Bibb County, Ga., officials worked to come up with the funds to close Walker Road landfill and an inert landfill. Now, the County Commission has passed a resolution that allows the county to use $652,500 from the Macon Water Authority to close its inert landfill.
The county’s next challenge will be to figure out how it will pay for closing Walker Road landfill, the county’s main landfill. This closure is expected to cost an estimated $10 million.
Both of these landfill closures are part of the Solid Waste Department’s long-term plan for waste and recycling services.
