Solid Waste Board to Discuss Landfill Operations

The Bartholomew County Solid Waste Management District is expected to discuss Thursday whether to renew or extend a contract with Rumpke Indiana LLC worth about $1.5 million annually or to seek more bidders to operate the county-owned landfill on County Road 450 S.

Our news gathering partners at “The Republic” report that the district needs thousands of tons of trash from Rumpke and the associated fees to break even. That’s according to a financial analysis done by Indianapolis accounting firm H.J. Umbaugh and Associates.

The district, at the urging of board member Columbus Mayor Kristen Brown, paid $25,000 for the financial analysis in order to get a better understanding of the district's finances. Brown has hoped to find a way to pay for a countywide curbside recycling program through the solid waste district.
