Department Funding

Department funding is derived from community host fees per the Host Agreement between Macon County and Advanced Disposal Services, owner of Valley View Landfill. Host fees are paid quarterly to Macon County by Advanced Disposal Services, based on the amount of waste transported to Valley View Landfill.  A portion of the County’s host fees provide revenue for Macon County Environmental Management Department’s budget. Those funds are in turn used to provide the community with various recycling programs, spring clean up grants and community grants as well as the inspection and enforcement program.
