Murfreesboro Mayor Shane McFarland told News Radio WGNS that with the closing of the local landfill in the next 8 to 12 years, the city will have to examine the idea of curbside recycling.


Middle Point Landfill is expected to close no later than 2028 or sooner, depending on population growth in the county. Once the landfill closes, Rutherford County will have to pay to ship its trash to other landfills.
