COVINGTON, Ga. - The Newton County Solid Waste Authority is hosting a Public Information Open House Thursday, Nov. 7 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Good Hope Baptist Church.
The meeting will allow citizens to hear an update on the landfill improvement project. The project began in January 2019 and is anticipated to take three years to complete.
Improvements to the landfill will include placing waste from an older outdated cell to a new lined area of the landfill. The lining will keep the environment around the landfill from being contaminated from any possible leachate which could come from an unlined cell.
Also during the meeting, the public will also have a chance to be introduced to a draft of the Solid Waste Management Authority’s Strategic Plan.
The public is invited to the meeting located at 1142 Ga. Highway 162 in Covington.
