While it may be one of the largest landfill closures in state history, the City of Campbellsville didn't spend a dime to close its Red Fern Road site.
The $7.5 million effort to close the City's landfill was expected to wrap up last week, according to Bill Hall, landfill manager. The completion brings to a close a 25-year effort.
The landfill hasn't been used since 1982 and the City has tried to close it ever since.
"We've sent off request after request and they were coming back way more than the City could afford."
