Final Installment to County for Hosting Turkey Trot Landfill Brings Total Paid to $1.9 million
Advanced Disposal Services, Inc., a regional integrated environmental services company, presented Washington County Solid Waste Authority with a $750,000 check at today’s county commission meeting. The payment brings the total amount given to Washington County to more than $1.9 million in return for hosting the company’s Turkey Trot Landfill, which opened in December 2010.
“As chairman of the Washington County Solid Waste Authority, I have had the pleasure of working closely with Advanced Disposal and the staff at Turkey Trot Landfill for the last several years,” said Chairman Allen Bailey. “They are stellar corporate citizens, and we appreciate all that they continue to do for Washington County.”
As part of Advanced Disposal’s contract with Washington County Solid Waste Authority, the county received initial payments of $900,000 when Turkey Trot Landfill opened. The final payment of $750,000 was to be paid once the landfill averaged 800 tons per day for six months, a milestone which Advanced Disposal, along with the county’s support, reached this month. In addition to the lump sum payments, Washington County also receives a monthly fee for hosting based on a tiered tonnage structure. The county will continue to receive these monthly host fees.
“We are fortunate to have this partnership, in which both parties work together to grow the landfill and thus benefit all of the residents and businesses who call Washington County home,” said Dave Lavender, Advanced Disposal’s regional vice president. “Turkey Trot’s success is due in large part to our relationship with the Washington County Commission, and we look forward to building upon the success we’ve achieved in just a little more than a year.”
