Port Arthur to pay Beaumont for use of landfill on weekends

Posted:

Port Arthur's trash is worth about $50,000.

That's the amount the city of Port Arthur will pay the city of Beaumont every year for using its landfill on the weekend.

Port Arthur's landfill is normally closed on weekends, but the solid waste division has units that work six days a week.

The new agreement will prevent issues regarding odors and health surrounding the environment.

Beaumont's landfill is the only one open on Saturdays in the area.
