On Tuesday, March 23, the Mayor and Commissioners toured the current Walker Road Landfill to discuss its closure and a convenience center in Monroe County to see what could eventually replace the landfill. Learn more in this MaconBibbTV video:

“We’re going to have at least five of these convenience centers placed around the county to make it easier for people to bring their construction material, old tires, recycling, and more,” says Mayor Lester Miller. “This will also help cut down on the illegal dumping that plagues our neighborhoods.”

Since January, Macon-Bibb crews have cleaned up nearly two million pounds of debris from 151 illegal dumps as part of the Clean Streets Matter effort.

  

On April 10, people can join the effort by hosting a neighborhood cleanup. To register as an individual or team visit www.keepmaconbibbbeautiful.org and click on the homepage banner. If you do not have an area picked out to clean, KMBB will help you or your group join with another neighborhood.  Individuals and teams will be provided with resources needed such as grabbers, buckets, vests, gloves, trash bags or dumpsters to ensure a successful cleanup. KMBB will partner with Macon-Bibb and Waste Management to collect trash and measure the impact you make your neighborhood.
