A Solid Waste Authority made up of North Georgia Counties
for the purpose of promoting safe solid waste handling through education, recycling and composting
The North Georgia Resource Management Authority was created in 1994. This Authority allowed counties to work regionally to
handle existing solid waste issues, to provide for solid waste to be properly and economically diverted from landfill waste
streams, to explore potential opportunities, to maximize resources and to expand existing programs.
In 1997 Banks
County became a member and in 2000 the Authority became the second regional Keep America Beautiful Affiliate in the State
of Georgia under the name "Keep Our Mountains Beautiful".
To date the Authority has brought its members
over $1,800,000.00 in grant funds and has won ten awards.
The North Georgia Resource Management Authority began the
first Regional Recycling Co-operative in the state of Georgia in 2005. By working together as a region we are able to collect
more materials and market them successfully.
