The Athens-Clarke County Landfill is a state-of-the-art, lined Subtitle D landfill. The landfill is comprised of about 400 acres with a remaining capacity of 10 years.

Approximately 300 tons of material are disposed in the landfill per day (as of January 2006). In August 1992, the county entered into a landfill agreement with neighboring Oglethorpe County. This allowed for the expansion of the landfill into Oglethorpe County on approximately 40 acres of property owned by Athens-Clarke County. This agreement also required that all construction and demolition waste be diverted to the Oglethorpe County C and D landfill (located on Highway 78).

Regulations
All garbage must be covered by a tarp and secured. Transporting unsecured loads is illegal! OCGA 40-6-254 states that no person shall operate any motor vehicle with a load on or in such vehicle unless the load is adequately secured to prevent the dropping or shifting of the load onto the roadway. Any person who operates a vehicle in violation of this code section shall be guilty of a misdemeanor.
