Private company to operate transfer station
The new transfer station behind Tenneco Automotive in Smithville.
The county commission voted Monday night to grant a contract to turn some of the county’s solid waste disposal duties over to a private company. Commissioners approved a three-year contract with Southern Central Waste Services, LLC. (SWCS) of McMinnville to take over operation of the new soon solid waste transfer station. The county’s solid waste committee recommended the SCWS bid proposal, one of two submitted, be approved.
