Dougherty County -- Dougherty County's Landfill is doing a good job of protecting the environment. It got a perfect inspection score for the third time in a row.

Compliance officers from the Environmental Protection Division periodically visit the landfill unannounced to make sure operating records are up to date.

They also tour the site to make sure it's following state regulations that protect human health and the environment.

"That is our number one goal to protect the land, water and air. And so by having a 100 that means the citizens of Dougherty County can rest assured that the Dougherty County Landfill is not polluting the environment," said Director, Michael McCoy.

Dougherty County Landfill managers credit the accomplishment to their hardworking employees.
