Beatrice Authorities Explore Future Options For Solid Waste Disposal Facility

Officials expect the Beatrice Solid Waste Disposal Facility south of Beatrice on West Locust Road will be filled within a decade. Considering up to a five year time frame for implementing an alternative, a meeting was held recently with engineers to consider options. The first would be expansion of the current site, estimated to cost $3.5 million, with an eight year life. Second consideration is a transfer station across the road from the current site, estimated to cost $5.3 million. The final option is a new site, proposed south of the current, with a price tag over $28 million, and a 63 year lifespan. No decisions were made, with additional research to continue.
