Tippecanoe County Solid Waste District receives final approval


Tippecanoe County has officially established its own solid waste district.

Commissioners gave final approval today for the creation of the Tippecanoe County Solid Waste District.

The county has contracted with Southside Landfill to handle the job, which includes hazardous waste collection.

But Commission President Tom Murtaugh says the new site won’t be ready to accept hazardous waste until April 1st.

The County severed its relationship with the Wildcat Creek Solid Waste District last month.

Murtaugh says Southside Landfill will provide expanded hours for hazardous waste collection at no additional cost to the taxpayers.
