Tift grease destined for Dougherty County

February 18, 2008


Albany -- Dougherty County will give Tift county a hand with its waste management for the next few months.  Dougherty County Commissioners today approved to accept liquid waste from Tift County.  

Tift County will transport liquid haulers of restaurant grease for the next five months because their mixing pad is out of commission.

"It's the neighborly thing to do," says Dougherty County District 6 Commissioner Jack Stone. "A lot of people in Tift County spend a lot of money in Dougherty County, with Dougherty County being the hub of South Georgia. They have a problem that is a temporary problem. If it was a long term situation I would have never went along with it. But at the present time they have problem and its temporary, four to five months. And it's very little stuff."

Dougherty County will charge Tift County $63 per ton of liquid waste. It will be disposed of in the Dougherty County Landfill.
