COFFEE CO., Ala. (WDHN)—This month, the Coffee County Landfill “opened” its eighth cell to accept garbage
around a year earlier than anticipated.

The landfill opened in the rural “Victoria Community” nearly 30-years-ago.
It serves more than 50 counties, cities, and towns across most of Southeast, Alabama, and Northwest, Florida.

A few weeks ago, the new 14-acre cell was opened to take in the garbage. It’s expected to accept refuse for the next eight to 10 years.

Solid waste officials say they’re seeing an increase in garbage, and that’s due to the increase in population, and the pandemic may have even had an impact.
