COLUMBUS, Ind. — The Bartholomew County Solid Waste Management District needs thousands of tons of trash from Rumpke Indiana LLC and the associated fees to break even, according to a financial analysis by an Indianapolis accounting firm.
The waste district's board is scheduled to consider Thursday whether to renew or to extend a contract with Rumpke worth about $1.5 million annually or to seek more bidders to operate the county-owned landfill on County Road 450S. But with new information from the financial analysis, some board members said they are ready to stop delaying a decision and sign again with Rumpke.
The district, at the urging of board member Columbus Mayor Kristen Brown, paid $25,000 for the financial analysis from H.J. Umbaugh and Associates of Indianapolis to better understand the district's finances. Brown has hoped to find a way to pay for a countywide curbside recycling program through the solid waste district.
