BVSWMA FY 2014 Budget Presented to CS CouncilFeatured Stories, News Thursday, July 18th, 2013
The board governing the Brazos Valley Solid Waste Management Agency (BVSWMA) has developed its fiscal year 2014 budget, which was approved at the last meeting of the College Station city council.
BVSWMA is finishing its second year operating the Twin Oaks Landfill on Highway 30 in Grimes County, which recently completed building another cell.
Executive Director Bryan Griespach says if Twin Oaks continues receiving the same amount of refuse, the landfill will last another 90 years. If there is a yearly increase of 2 to 3 percent, the lifespan is estimated at 60 years.
The Twin Oaks landfill handles about 300,000 tons of municipal solid waste each year. Nearly 60 percent comes from outside College Station and Bryan.
Twin Oaks converts about 7,000 tons of waste into compost and another 8,000 tons into wood mulch.
BVSWMA also maintains the old Rock Prairie Road Landfill, where Griespach reported the final cover was recently completed.
The FY 14 budget includes revenues of about $6.88 million and expenses of almost $7.65 million.
Representatives of the College Station and Bryan city councils make up the BVSWMA board.
