Limestone County Logo

TAKE NOTICE that on March 20, 2023, at its regular meeting at the Clinton Street Courthouse Annex, 100 South Clinton Street, Athens, Alabama, immediately following the Work Session of the Limestone County Commission (“Commission”) at 9:00 AM, the Commission will consider whether to approve the modification of an existing solid waste management site located at 16100 BFI Lane, Athens, Alabama 35611.  There will be a public hearing and an opportunity for public comment, at this meeting. 

On May 6, 2022, there was a fire at the existing solid waste transfer station at this location, which damaged the site.  The Solid Waste Disposal Authority of Athens and Limestone County (“Authority”) plans to repair and improve the transfer station and has requested this approval by the Commission.  The proposed project consists of a new 10,000 square foot metal prefabricated building, a new 5,000 square foot metal prefabricated building, reinforced concrete stem walls, reinforced concrete tipping floor, heavy duty concrete paving, leachate management system, utilities, and site improvements.  The new additions will be located at the existing transfer station site and will be funded by the Authority.  The Authority owns the transfer station and the real property upon which it sits, and the transfer station will continue to be operated by BFI Waste Services, LLC (d/b/a Republic Services of Huntsville).  This work is entirely consistent with the current Limestone County Solid Waste Management Plan, which provided for a solid waste transfer station located at this site, used by the Limestone County with respect to the solid waste generated within its jurisdiction.  Interested persons can obtain additional information and can review copies of the Limestone County Solid Waste Management Plan and the above-described proposal by contacting Marc Massey, the Limestone County Engineer, at 256-233-6400, or All pertinent documents are available for inspection during normal business hours at Limestone County Commission Office, located at 100 W Washington Street, Athens, AL 35611.
