Macon-Bibb Inert Landfill to Close by FebruaryMacon-Bibb Inert Landfill to Close by February
October 27, 2015
Mostly bricks, blocks, and dirt make up the Macon-Bibb inert landfill. It's a type of landfill that only takes in construction and yard waste materials.
According to the county's solid waste director, it's set to close in less than 4 months.
As far as the reason why, Kevin Barkley, the county's solid waste director says, "We did not meet the minimum requirements going forward for new inert landfills, so we have to shut this one down."
Barkley says after new state rules for inert landfills were created, it was determined this one didn't make the cut.
