The Authority was established in January 1995 for non-profit and public purposes to benefit the citizens of Dalton, GA and Whitfield County. The Authority provides four convenience centers throughout the county and one MSW landfill. In 1999, the Authority established the first and only permanent, publicly owned Household Hazardous Waste facility in the state. The Authority completed the construction of a Materials Recovery Facility and began its operation on January 2, 2002. The Authority has also established a wetland and stream mitigation bank. The Authority and the Styron, LLC facility located in Dalton, GA developed an environmentally beneficial project which capitalizes on an otherwise wasted resource. The project, commissioned in June 2008, is the direct use of LFG to offset the use of natural gas and includes ~2 miles of pipeline. In addition, the Authority has listed the project with the Climate Action Reserve and has successfully completed three verifications.
