WASTE TIRE DISPOSAL
Due to Tire Grant Requirements Bi-County Solid Waste will now require that PRIVATE Individuals provide the following information when disposing of Waste Tires.
Name, Address, and Number of Tires
This information will be kept on file for the State of Tennessee to insure that residents from other Counties are not using Montgomery County facilities for tire disposal.
Serving Montgomery County, Stewart County and Fort Campbell
Montgomery County and Stewart County formed a Solid Waste Authority in 1974. This foresight has led to one of the best-run facilities in the United States. Known world wide, Bi-County continues to operate an environmentally sound Class I Landfill, which meets or exceeds all of the Federal and State solid waste regulations. Bi-County was the first government run landfill in Tennessee to meet the new Subtitle D regulations for solid waste.
A seven member board governs the Bi-County Solid Waste Management System. Joe L. Creek is the current Chairman of the Board.
Bi-County employs three people who are certified to operate a landfill. The director is a certified manager of landfill operations and is designated as a landfill specialist.
In September 2008, Bi-County started using compactors to compact trash in the balefill. Bi-County also has two Harris Refuse Balers that are used in the recycle program. The recycle program has increased from almost 10 tons per month to now over 2,000 tons per month.
Bi-County works with Montgomery County School System providing educational programs and collecting recycles. Revenue collected from recycles and savings from the diverted waste, amounts to over $15,000.00 per year for the school system.
In May of 2006, Bi-County openend the Construction and Demolition Landfill near exit 4 of Interstate 24, at the back gate of the UCAR plant. This site is for commercial use only.
