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 by Towns, Union and Lumpkin Counties. This Authority allowed
these 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.
