At the Peoria City/County Landfill Committee meeting Sept 18, the waste receipt report from Waste Management showed a drop in landfill tonnage for August 2019 with the year-to-date waste at 113,582 tons compared to 120,091.64 tons in 2018.
Foth staff presented a report researching declining waste trends at the current Peoria City County Landfill 2 (PCCL2), which was requested by the Landfill Committee. Several interesting bar graphs comparing amounts of recycling by year and tonnage at the landfill along with other analyses reached the following conclusions:
The Landfill Budget for 2020 was presented with other information including the 2018 actual revenues and expenses, the 2019 budget and the 2019 year-to-date expenditures. The 2020 Budget includes a significant decrease for waste amounts from what was projected earlier meaning a projected deficit of $29,450.00 is expected for next year. Several options were presented and the Committee will be looking at these in more detail at the next meeting. PDC is expecting to have PCCL3 open in 2025, which could affect revenues.
The Foth Engineering report included;
This was the regularly scheduled, third Wednesday of each month, 3 p.m. meeting at Peoria City Hall, Room 419, with Chairman Steve Morris presiding. Citizen’s remarks were given by a property owner near the city county landfill who spoke of overflow problems from a road-side ditch and that water has been over an area of Cottonwood Road. He would like the water drained to the landfill as it is currently running onto his property. After discussion, Chairman Morris said he would phone the county highway engineer to look into the matter as it sounded more like a roadway ditch maintenance issue.
