Dougherty County landfill proud of recent accomplishment

September 24, 2007

Albany--  Dougherty County's landfill gets a perfect score on a recent audit.

For only the the third time since opening in the 1980's, the Dougherty County Landfill on Gaissert Road received a score of 100 from the Environmental Protection Division.

Solid Waste Director Mike McCoy says it's proof that the citizens of Dougherty County can be assured that every measure is taken at the landfill to keep them and the environment safe.

"It means that the landfill is providing safe sanitary disposal of all the solid waste that we receive and we're protecting human health and the environment of citizens of Dougherty County," said McCoy.

McCoy says perfect scores are rare and hard to achieve. The landfill is heavily regulated by state and federal laws.
