The Peoria City/Peoria County Landfill Committee voted unanimously this morning to recommend to the full City Council and the full County Board that Peoria Disposal Company to be the next operator of the City/County Landfill expansion at Edwards. PDC will take over the operation from Waste Management at the end of the current contract.
The committee is made up of myself, Brad Harding and Bob Akers from the County and Ryan Spain, Steve Van Winkle and Dave Barber from the city and Lester Bergsten as our Chairman.
More information will appear at appropriate times on this site as details are worked out. As the committee wound its way down to a final vote, it is noted that the multi-hundred million dollar contract major step had no members (to my knowledge) of anyone from the media present.
Stay tuned to this site for "breaking news".
