Baker Sanitary Service wants to accept waste from Grant, Wallowa counties

Baker Sanitary Service is asking the Baker County Planning Commission to allow the company to accept waste from Grant and Wallowa counties.

Baker Sanitary currently buries trash from Baker and Union counties at the landfill the company owns near Sutton Creek, about three miles southeast of Baker City.

The Planning Commission will consider the request during its meeting Thursday, July 24 at 6 p.m. at the Courthouse, 1995 Third St.

According to Baker Sanitary Service's application, the trash haulers in both Grant and Wallowa counties asked the company about the possibility of bringing waste to the Baker Sanitary landfill.

Clark's Disposal in John Day has been hauling trash to a landfill at Boardman, and the company told Baker Sanitary it would be less expensive to truck trash to Baker City instead. That's a much shorter trip from Grant County.

In the case of Wallowa County, Rahn's Sanitary of Enterprise might be interested in trucking waste to Baker Sanitary's landfill, at least temporarily.

According to Baker Sanitary's application, taking waste from Grant and Wallowa counties would have a "quite small" effect on the company's landfill capacity.
