Dayton, OH (PRWEB) May 30, 2013
Montgomery County officials announced a joint solid waste transportation and disposal agreement that will save more than $15 million for Montgomery County over the next five years.
“The Montgomery County Commission is committed to exploring any possible tax-saving collaboration with other local governments. We all serve our citizens better if we work together to save money. This agreement shows the tangible benefits. Our citizens save $15 million dollars. This is how governments can work smarter,” said Montgomery County Commissioner Judy Dodge.
The new agreement takes effective on August 1, 2013. Compared to the previous agreement, the new agreement will allow for up to 85,000 tons of Montgomery County solid waste to be disposed of annually at a landfill in Dayton. The remaining 285,000 tons of solid waste from Montgomery County and a neighboring county will be disposed of at a landfill in Bellefontaine, Ohio.
