Stressing the negative impact closing Central Kentucky Landfill would have on Scott County, Chief Operating Officer Greg Elkins sent a two-page letter to the Georgetown City Council and Scott County Fiscal Court last week. Georgetown City Council members received the letter roughly three hours before giving voice approval to final negotiations with Republic Services for the city’s sanitation collection starting Jan. 1, 2022.

“I know that much has been said already about the landfill and its potential closing later this year,” Elkins wrote to the News-Graphic in an email. “This issue is not only important to me, it is important to the 110 employees that are employed by Waste Services of the Bluegrass and its family of companies. All of the men and women live in central Kentucky and many of them live right here in Scott County.
