Peoria landfill settlement means $130,000 more in revenue
“Those costs continue to rise and they create a lot of pressure on the landfill operations. But this agreement is a great step in the right direction that I think helps put us on a more sustainable path for the near term,” Spain says.
The Peoria County Board and City Council also must approve the agreement for it to take effect. The proposed settlement also requires Waste Management to spend up to $150,000 to repair the landfill entrance road.
