2002 Solid Waste Management Survey and Full Cost Report

The Georgia Comprehensive Solid Waste Management Act requires the City of Vidalia to develop a strategy for reducing the amount of solid waste going into landfills and other disposal facilities. This reduction may be accomplished by many techniques, including recycling materials such as plastic, aluminum, and newspaper. It can also be accomplished by diverting yard waste from disposal facilities into backyard or other composting operations. Many other methods for reducing our local waste stream are also available. Most of these methods involve your cooperation and effort. If you are interested in information about what you can do to help, please contact the person listed below.

The Act also requires all local governments to disclose to its citizens the full cost of providing solid waste management services. This and other required information is included below:
