The county commission voted last week to contract with Smith County to dispose of DeKalb's household refuse when the new solid waste transfer station is complete. The commission approved a five-year contract with Smith County to take DeKalb's solid waste at the rate of $29 a ton. Elk Mountain Construction of Cookeville was also awarded the bid to construct the facility on Highway 70 east behind Tenneco Automotive.
