The Benton County Solid Waste Disposal Commission

About

Benton County Landfill Commission

In 2013, residents from across Benton County met to discuss the future of the county’s landfill, knowing the facility would reach its maximum capacity by 2015.  These talks led to the formation of an ad-hoc committee of elected officials, and city and rural representatives.  The Committee was charged with the task of deciding the direction of waste management in Benton County,  After much discussion, they decided to recreate the Benton County Solid Waste Disposal Commission, which was originally created in the 70’s to build and run the landfill; later the commission turned control of the landfill over to the County Supervisors. In 2014, the original 28E Agreement between the Cities and Benton County was revised, along with the initial By-Laws, and the Benton County Solid Waste Disposal Commission was formally reestablished. The new Commission decided to stay with a landfill operation at the current location, which required the construction of a new waste cell.  To manage design and construction of the new cell, the engineering firm of Barker/Lemar was hired.  On April 21, 2015, J B Hollard was awarded the contract to build the new cell; construction began on Monday, July 27th, and was completed on the 20th of October, 2015. On February 18, 2016, a proposal from Schrader Construction was accepted by the Landfill Commission to retrofit the groundwater drainage system of the landfill.. The renovation would tie the two original cell’s drainage systems to the new cell’s drainage system. The renovation  was completed on March 11th of that year, bringing construction of the new cell to an end. In early August of 2016, work was started on a new maintenance building, capable housing the landfill’s equipment, it was finished by late October... Plans are now underway to build a new scale house in May of 2018. 28E Agreement:    Current By Laws:
