County looking at options as landfill nears capacity.
County leaders met Tuesday night to discuss the future of the Macon County Landfill. With an average of 30,000 tons of trash a year being piled into the landfill, the current plan's days are numbered.
Commissioner Paul Higdon, who acts as the liaison to the solid waste department brought the capacity issue to the attention of the board during its regularly scheduled monthly meeting, requesting a special called meeting to discuss possible solutions. Tuesday night, commissioners heard from Chris Stahl, director of Solid Waste Management for Macon County, on possible solutions to avoid reaching capacity at the landfill.
