Rutherford County Commissioners Hear Additional Information about the Future of Solid Waste

On Thursday April 12, 2018, the Rutherford County Commissioners received a briefing from solid waste consultants Gershman, Brickner & Bratton (GBB) about the solid waste feasibility study conducted by the County, the City of Murfreesboro, and their consultants over the past 18 months.

Following the briefing and some in-depth discussion, the Commissioners voted against allowing Republic Services to conduct exploratory investigations at the County Landfill. Those investigations would have been the first step in gathering information about the management option known as “Middle Point 2.0.” Shortly thereafter, the Commissioners voted against any further consideration of Middle Point 2.0 when planning for the county’s future solid waste management system.
