The Solid Waste Disposal Fund accounts for the receipts and disbursements to operate the jointly owned Statesboro-Bulloch transfer station and inert landfill on Lakeview Road, post-closure costs of the Lakeview Road landfill, costs to transport and dispose of the solid waste at the Wayne County Solid Waste Authority (WCSWA) Broadhurst Landfill, and funding for Keep Bulloch Beautiful. Transportation is provided by contract with a trucking company. Disposal is provided by long-term contract with the WCSWA. This fund is financed by SPLOST proceeds and tipping fees assessed at the transfer station and inert landfill. The use of SPLOST proceeds for disposal and post-closure costs mitigate the need for higher tipping fees, which helps deter illegal dumping.
- Tipping fee for municipal solid waste processed at the transfer station is $38.00 per ton.
- Tipping fee for inert waste is $19.75 per ton.
- Tires received are charged a separate tipping fee.
See FY2013 Solid Waste Disposal Fees for a complete disposal fee schedule.
