Is COMPOSTING A Solution To The Landfill Problem?

  Email   Print

County Mayor Bill Ketron says we need an answer to our landfill problem, before it is full. He has chartered a bus, and around forty community leaders are touring the compost plant in Sevierville. Officials in that East Tennessee county compost 93 per cent of their total waste--it does not go to a landfill.

With just two-weeks on the job, Ketron feels that our leaders can learn from the Sevierville composting plant . . .


Ketron explained that Sevier County creates 300-tons of waste monthly, and Rutherford County is twice that size. Ketron noted that this might not be the total answer, but it could be part of the answer . . .


Rutherford County representatives from cities, the county and state will be there learning about the complex in Sevier County.

NewsRadio WGNS has been invited to be a part of the group, which allows the public to get first-hand information about the East Tennessee composting system and how it might relate to the Heart of Tennessee.
