As the Middle Point landfill approaches capacity, Rutherford County has decisions to make — costly decisions.
Currently, county residents pay no tipping fee or tax to use Middle Point, at a savings of $4 million a year. Also, the county receives $900,000 a year from other counties that use the landfill. But, those advantages will go away when Middle Point closes. One thing is certain: The cost to residents will increase considerably.
The Advisory Council is seeking ways to proceed smartly — in a way that is both fiscally and environmentally sound — and they need your input.
