City and County work to keep landfill

July 27, 2004

Albany- The city and county are joining together to enforce rules using the Dougherty County landfill.

City commissioners agreed to create an Intergovernmental contract concerning the landfill on Gaissert Road.

That means businesses that haul trash for people in the unincorporated areas of Dougherty County must dump the trash at the land fill and will help regulate dumping.

"We have a big problem in Albany with illegal dumping, with littering, and any time we can reach out and get an area to comply with the same kind of rules and regulations the city has, then we feel like it's a good thing," said Phil Roberson, Public Works Director.

The agreement between the city and county also leads the way for an efficiency study and financial analysis of the landfill.
