County sells proposed landfill site to local cardiologist
Published: April 9,2014
CORINTH — Alcorn County supervisors have accepted a bid of $1,100 per acre for 125 acres once proposed for a rubbish landfill.
The board of supervisors voted 3-2 for the sale to Corinth cardiologist Dr. John Prather. The proceeds will go into the county solid waste fund.
The county had owned the 129-acre property for almost 20 years.
A 10-year garbage and rubbish disposal agreement signed last year with Waste Connection of Walnut is expected to realize savings in rubbish disposal and bring the operation within budget over time and rendered the property surplus, said board president Lowell Hinton.
As part of the 10-year agreement, Waste Connections — which operates the Northeast Mississippi Regional Landfill in Walnut — also operates the Alcorn County transfer station and transports the county’s rubbish.
