Washington County, Tennessee has spent the past several weeks looking into various options on saving money on their solid waste disposal. Currently the county hauls all of their waste to the iris glen facility in Johnson City. County and city officials seem to be at odds on whether the county could save money. County mayor Dan Eldridge says three-hundred-thousand dollars could be saved by using different pricing options. Phil Pindzolla, Johnson City's public works director has different calculations he presented to the board. Officials say that the process could take several weeks. The board will meet again the first week in January.
